If my case has begun with another attorney, can I switch to your law firm?

Yes, and you will not suffer. It is our policy that you should pay the same fee that you contracted for with the other attorney and we will reduce our fee by the amount owed the prior attorney. This has proven to be a very acceptable approach to clients. We would never insist on our full fee; you have every right to have your case handled without having to pay an additional legal fee.

Attorneys at Feinberg & Alban, P.C. as well as all support staff are readily available to speak to you or meet with you. Our philosophy is that you should feel fully informed. That policy begins with our very first meeting with you when you are given a copy of the Contingent Fee Agreement, as is required.

  • If there is no will, it is determined how the property is to be distributed, in accordance with the inheritance laws of the state where the decedent lived.
  • Unpaid creditors of the decedent are given the opportunity to file claims against the estate.
  • Fees for administration of the estate are approved and paid.
  • The probate assets of the estate are distributed.
