Probate courts in Connecticut serve many purposes. One of the reasons for their existence is to ease access for regular citizens to the powers of the law. An attorney to represent people's interests is an advisable step toward making sure that experiences with probate court are positive.

Key considerations for a proper succession plan

A succession plan is an important plan for any business owner to have in place. Not only can it help to secure the business and provide a smooth transition of power, but it can also set retirement allotments for the owner, as well as secure payment for the family when the business owner dies.

Planning an estate in Connecticut
