The Importance Of Estate Planning
Estate planning is a subject many people don’t like to think about. When you’re young, you assume you have plenty of time to get your estate in order. When you’re older, you may not want to contemplate your own mortality.
Although these attitudes are completely understandable, the truth is that none of us knows what life has in store. Therefore, planning your estate now is important. It is one of the best ways to ensure that your wishes will be known and honored and that your family will be financially secure.

How We Can Help Following The Death Of A Loved One
In Indiana, if an individual has $50,000 or more in assets (after subtraction of liens and encumbrances) in his or her name at the time of death, it is likely that his or her estate will need to be probated in court.
If you are a personal representative (sometimes called executor) overseeing an estate that needs to be probated, you will need the assistance of an experienced lawyer. At McCrea & McCrea, we have handled hundreds of probate estates and can take care of everything for you. We are efficient, detail-oriented, organized and thorough – the very skills that probating an estate requires. We will ensure that the process is completed as quickly and accurately as possible.
