The Elder Law Practice extends its deepest condolences to those who have lost loved ones in the recent tornado disasters. Unfortunately, natural disasters, accidents, and illnesses unexpectedly take the lives of people we love. For anyone who has to deal with this type of situation, we offer the following steps to get you started on handling an estate.
