Trust, Probate & Fiduciary Litigation

Missouri & Illinois Probate Administration Services

The attorneys of Schmidt Basch,LLC have an exceptional level of experience in probate administration matters ranging from straightforward, clear scenarios to the most complex and disputed probate issues. Our probate lawyers have more than 40 years of combined experience in Missouri probate resolution, with extensive experience in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County probate courts.

Our attorneys have worked effectively in matters where, unfortunately, a decedent’s financial affairs and estate were ill-prepared and poorly organized prior to the time of death. In such cases, our probate administration attorneys meticulously assist with research and documentation of all assets, debts and taxes associated with the estate. They then carefully guide the personal representative or executor through the probate process as painlessly as possible.

However, recognizing that some disputes may be unavoidable, our attorneys are well-prepared to resolve disagreements through mediation or litigation in venues across the State of Missouri and specifically throughout the Metropolitan St. Louis area, including Monroe, Madison and St. Clair counties in Illinois.

There are a myriad of factors that dictate the type, scope and length of probate administration, including but not limited to whether the decedent had a valid Last Will and Testament or not, the location of decedent’s last domicile (i.e. the county), and the location, type and value of decedent’s assets at the time of death. Our attorneys can provide you with analysis and recommendations for how best and when to proceed with the probate administration process based upon available information at that time and as new information is discovered.
