Missouri Lawyers Handling Probate and Contested Wills in St. Louis, St. Charles, O'Fallon and Other Areas

If you have recently lost a parent, we understand the difficulty of not only having a loved one pass away, but also the accompanying legal confusion. Whether your parent either had a will or did not have a will, we’ll walk with you through and make the process of dividing assets as smooth as possible.

Do any of these sound like you?

  • Your parent has a will, but you’re not sure what to do with it.
  • Your Mom and Dad did not have a will, but have a house, car, and other assets.
  • Your parent has a will without assets designated to specific beneficiaries.
  • You need help to get assets transferred to beneficiaries.
  • You waited too long to file with the state.
  • A lawyer needs to open an estate for you.
  • There are creditor’s claims that you’re not sure how to handle.

At Baerveldt & Boedefeld, we realize all of these things you never wanted to deal with are keeping you up at night and are what you talk about around the dinner table. We are never fully prepared to take on the role of executor and all of the responsibilities that come with it.

The good news is we’re here to help you through the process. Just like you, we want to ensure your loved one’s wishes are carried out and his or her possessions and assets are given to the proper beneficiary.

We’re here to supply you with the roadmap and begin putting the plan in motion today. Please give us a call at either 636-642-1024 or 888-370-3430. When you do, you’ll not only have much more clarity, but more importantly, will feel a sense of calm knowing that your loved one’s wishes will be carried out just as they envisioned.
