Thermopolis Estate Planning Lawyers

Wyoming Probate Lawyers

Planning for the future can be a daunting task. People think about dividing their property after death, how they want their medical decisions made, and who will take care of the kids — and it's overwhelming. Those are big decisions, and it's common to be worried about creating an estate plan that accurately reflects your wishes.

At Messenger & Overfield, P.C., we have nearly a century of experience helping clients in Thermopolis and throughout northwest Wyoming create estate plans and working through estate administration. Our lawyers take the time to understand the unique details of each client and make sure their estate plan is representative of those wishes. We create thorough estate plans, which can include:

  • Wills
  • Durable powers of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Trusts

Understanding Probate Administration

Unlike some firms that draft estate plans and then leave, we are there for our clients as long as they need us. In the event of a death, we assist with the estate administration, and we represent clients who want to contest a will. We do everything for our clients — from implementation to resolving assets.

Estate Planning and Probate Attorneys in Wyoming Messenger and Jurovich

We guide executors of small, medium and large estates through the probate process. Many people have no idea what they need to do. Probate includes identifying and distributing the assets, meeting requirements for probate or affidavits of survivorship, and sometimes addressing Medicaid liens. We know this can be a confusing process, but we make sure our clients have the information they need to make informed decisions throughout the process.

Hiring a Probate Attorney

Probate can be an emotionally and legally challenging process. Going through grief and trying to decipher the legal system is draining. When we draft an estate plan, we also keep copies of everything, so there is less pressure on families to find the original will after the death.

If there is a dispute over a will or the estate, we can represent clients in that as well. We litigate on the will, after the will and beyond the will. Our Thermopolis estate planning attorneys offer clients the representation they need from start to finish. Contact us online or call 307-463-4415 to schedule your initial consultation.
