More Than Two Decades Of Estate Planning Experience

Advanced estate planning is a strategic and important way to protect your assets, investments and the best interests of your family. The probate process involves the administration of an estate, including collection of assets, identification of debts, payment of taxes, distribution to beneficiaries and the general handling of an estate after death.

At The Law Office of Laura M. Krehbiel in Donnellson, Iowa, we have over 25 years of estate planning and probate service experience and offer qualified, personal legal services to individuals, families and business owners throughout the region.

Our Keokuk probate attorney is experienced with:

  • Planning for disability
  • Long-term care needs
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Preparation of Last will and testament
  • Creation of wills and trusts
  • Working with personal representatives and executors

Skilled Advocacy in Complex Probate Cases

Working with an experienced lawyer throughout the probate process is critical. Many cases become complicated quickly, leaving assets at stake and beneficiaries or executors open to liability. It is crucial to have qualified representation throughout the process to ensure proper filing and handling of documentation, correct distribution of assets and compliance with the law.

While the probate process is a necessary legal step for many people, it is not necessary for it to be stressful or confusing for executors or beneficiaries. If family tensions do exist, our goal is to handle the required legal steps in a professional and timely manner, but also to ensure that all persons involved understand the process and that all persons who contact our office are treated respectfully. To those ends, we have developed an organized method of handling estates, have written information readily available for both executors and beneficiaries, and have a policy of accepting telephone calls from all persons related to an estate unless precluded by confidentiality restrictions or scheduling considerations.
