Handling Probate, Real Estate, Estate Planning, Wills, and Trusts in Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, Tenino, Yelm, Shelton, Thurston County, and surrounding areas.


Help For Probate Cases

Washington probate law can be very complicated, especially after the loss of a family member. The benefits of quality representation of an Olympia probate lawyer who is knowledgeable in handling probate, real estate, wills, trusts, and estate planning matters include efficiency, assurance, and positive results.

Probate Administration With and Without A Will

Attorney Ryan A. Jacobsen at Jacobsen Law Office helps people with the probate process, or with their non-probate needs. When a person dies with a will, the court appoints a personal representative to administer the terms of the will, pay taxes, pay creditors, sell real estate and other assets, and distribute property to beneficiaries. When a person dies without a will, Washington probate law provides for intestate administration of an estate, and in some cases adjudication. When parties have disputes over estate property, we help families resolve their concerns efficiently and effectively, and ensure our clients’ interests are protected.
