Our firm represents executors and administrators in the probate administration process. Scott R. Ellis has the knowledge and expertise to effectively handle the administration of estates of any size, ranging from simple estates requiring a muniment of title to large and complex estates.

We pride ourselves on providing efficient, cost-effective representation in all probate matters, routinely completing most administrations of probate estates within six months. The firm charges hourly fees in probate matters; clients are not charged a percentage of the estate's value.

As probate and estate administrators, we work with our clients to insure the probate process runs smoothly. The Ellis Law Firm will review the estate involved and advise you as to the most efficient and economic manner to transfer property to those entitled. If you are named as the executor in a will, we can guide you through each step required.



There are situations, however, when someone dies without a will. If you are a close relative or friend in a situation where there is no will, our firm will advise regarding all options for administering and distributing the estate.
