Estate Planning Fundamentals

One of the best ways to protect your family is by creating a comprehensive estate plan. At the Law Office of Constance Aschenbrenner, we have experienced legal advisors who can develop a plan that will meet your individual needs. Our expert estate planners will walk you through each financial decision, resulting in a customized estate plan developed just for you and your family.

Probate & Estate Administration

When a family member or loved one dies, his or her estate often goes through probate. This is a court-managed process, unfamiliar to most, distributes the assets of the estate. How an estate moves through probate depends on the complexity of the estate, state and local laws, and the schedule of the probate court. Hiring an experienced Alaska estate administrator can make this process less difficult and painful.

The Law Office of Constance A. Aschenbrenner is committed to:

Providing honest and compassionate legal advice for your family.

Answering your questions and concerns about Alaska law and explaining what it means for your family.

Allowing each individual client the attention and focus needed to feel understood, with integrity intact.

Everybody needs a plan and it’s not dependent on the size of your estate.
