At Malveau Law Firm, we know how difficult it is to lose a loved one. You can count on us to use the utmost care and sensitivity when assisting our clients with the division of the deceased’s property.

There are several reasons to open a succession, but the most common reasons are:
To clearing title to property-- successions are often necessary to clear title to property. Without a succession, a potential buyer, lender, or other third party has no assurance of who actually has title to the property.

To access bank accounts--With few exceptions, a bank will require a succession before it will transfer the account of a deceased account holder to anyone else.  In fact, because of the strict privacy rules governing banks, most banks will want to see court documents before they will even discuss the matter with a person’s heirs.

At Malveau Law Firm, L.L.C. we can assist you with these types of successions:

  • Testate (With a Will)
  • Intestate (Without a Will)

Look no further for the caring and experienced legal representation you need.
