Lawyers for The Rights of Heirs in Alabama
Huntsville Estate Planning and Probate Lawyers
If you have been appointed as the executor or personal representative for a loved one who has died, you need to understand your responsibilities and the process of estate administration and probate.
For more than 70 years, the Huntsville law firm of Johnston, Moore & Thompson has provided estate planning and probate administration services to clients throughout North Alabama. Attorney Cynthia Thompson is currently the head of our estate planning practice. She has more than two decades of relevant legal experience in probate law. Our firm works hard to ensure that heirs receive what their loved ones intended them to inherit and that the process is completed as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Many times our law firm represents an heir to an estate instead of the personal representative. We answer questions about their inheritance and/or the probate or estate administration process. We review the terms of the Last Will and Testament, explain the legal rights of the heirs of the estate and the probate process. We often represent the heirs of an estate when the personal representative and the heir of an estate cannot agree on estate issues and fight to make sure the heir to an estate receives what the decedent intended for them to inherit or what the heir is entitled to receive under the laws in Alabama.
