Probate, Wills, and Estates

Cornelius & Collins’ experienced attorneys represent people in every step of the estate planning process, from powers of attorney and advanced care directives (healthcare powers of attorney and end of life decisions) during a person’s lifetime, to wills and/or trusts to transfer and preserve assets. Our attorneys also help with the probate administration process to carry out a decedent’s wishes.
