Looking for an estate attorney? Not easy. It’s quite the search to find someone who is trustworthy, someone who is looking out for your best interest and someone who actually returns your phone calls. It took time and effort and a few bad experiences to finally find an attorney with these attributes. That attorney is Blake Johnson.
Meeting with Blake for the first time, I was impressed with his professionalism, his ability to understand my situation and his expertise in formulating a plan for my future estate needs. All the paperwork concerning my will and trust was done in a very timely manner and done with compassion and care for myself and my loved ones.
After finally having such a good experience with Blake and his staff, I highly recommend him for any estate needs.
I can’t thank his office enough for their expert advice and assistance with my estate planning.
Mr Blake Johnson has done an amazing job for us. We had a trust drawn up many years ago and it was a very confusing experience. When we were done, we looked at each other and had no idea what anything meant and what we were suppose to do. I met Blake and we talked about it. He explained things to me in a manner that made sense. We had him revise and update our trust. He walked us through the process, answered all of our questions, and explained everything to us. We are extremely happy with him and his work. I would highly recommend him.

Who is responsible for handling probate
All estates that do not have proper planning done must go through probate once someone dies in order for the distributions from the estate to become official. If you have lost someone close to you and need help with a probate, the Law Offices of Kurt A. Johnson can help lighten your load.
What Do I Need a Will?
Formally known as the Last Will and Testament, the will is generally the final document your family will read from you. It lays out how you want your estate disposed of and who you want to oversee the process. If done properly it can prevent fights within the family and make your passing much easier on your family.
What is Probate
Probate is the formal court proceedings for the administration of the estate of a deceased person. If your estate planning is not done properly your estate could be tied up in litigation and probate court for a long time. Although there are many ways to help speed up the process of probate there is no way to avoid it all together once someone has died.
