We have experienced attorneys to walk you through a document and help determine your rights.

We have experienced attorneys who have handled numerous contested and uncontested divorces.

Heirship Proceedings – When a loved one dies without a will, it may be necessary for a Court to determine who the heirs to the estate are. This is accomplished through what is known as an Heirship Proceeding. This is a necessary proceeding in order to probate the estate and distribute it to the heirs at law.
Landlord/Tenant Disputes – Whether you are the landlord or the tenant, this area of the law can be confusing and require very specific documents to be filed in a specific time frame. We have experienced lawyers ready to assist you in resolving any issues or disputes you may be having with your landlord or your tenant.
Medical Directives/Living Wills – The decision to remain on life-sustaining equipment is a very personal one that only you should make for yourself. A medical directive documents your wishes in the event you cannot voice them for yourself. At Spurlock & Associates, P.C., we will counsel you on the importance of these documents and prepare them according to your wishes.
Probate – When a loved one passes away, probating their estate within four years of their death is essential. If your loved one prepared a will prior to their death, probating that will so that the estate can be distributed per their wishes is generally a quick process. If your loved one died without a will, it can complicate the probate process and require more to be filed with the Court. We have handled many probate matters with and without a will and are familiar with these processes and the paperwork necessary to complete them.

Wills – Drafting a will can be a difficult and confusing process. It is important to make those decisions now so that your loved ones do not have to make them for you later. We will meet with you to go over your estate, your desires for distributing your assets and any questions you may have.

Trusts can also be used to transfer assets to loved ones without going through the probate process. We can provide you the information necessary to make these important decisions and provide the services required to meet your individual needs.
