Probate is the legal process whereby the court oversees the distribution of a decedent’s property, including the distribution of property to beneficiaries and by paying off the decedent’s debts and taxes.
At Khani & Auerbach we assist with the collection of assets, provide notice to creditors, and distribute the decedent’s assets. Pursuant to Florida law, an attorney is required to probate an estate.

We can also help you understand your rights as an heir or beneficiary.
