We can make sure that you don't bite off more than you can chew by assisting you in determining whether the estate needs to be probated. If so, we can assist with opening the estate, ensuring that creditors receive proper notice, either filing the necessary tax returns or assisting you in locating tax professionals who can do so, obtaining the necessary clearance letters from the Tennessee Department of Revenue and the Bureau of TennCare, and handling other matters that need to be completed in order to close the estate. In short, we focus on handling your loved one's estate in an efficient, cost-effective manner so you can focus on moving forward with your life.
