San Antonio Estate Administration And Probate Lawyer

Few things are more devastating than the loss of a loved one. However, as you are working through the loss of a loved one, you may also be expected to move his or her estate through probate or the estate administration process.

Whether you are probating an estate (which is done when there is a will) or administering the estate (which is done when there is no will), working with an experienced lawyer can help ensure you meet all deadlines and file the necessary paperwork correctly.

I am attorney Matthew Obermeier, and I represent individuals throughout San Antonio in probate, estate administration and estate planning matters. I strive to make the probate process move as smoothly as possible from beginning to end. I do this by helping those tasked with administering an estate:

  • Locate the will
  • File documents with the probate court
  • Obtain a death certificate (and as many copies as needed)
  • Locate the heirs
  • Distribute assets
  • Pay creditors
  • Collect income due to the deceased party
  • Resolve will disputes

When assisting with these or other aspects of probate, I work diligently to keep things moving at an efficient, yet appropriate, pace.
