Estate Planning & Probate

Depending on your goals and your circumstances a comprehensive estate plan can include a will, trusts, powers of attorney, and advance health care directives. Making sure your wishes are known and recorded can help provide you with peace of mind and help preserve the value of your estate so that it can do the most good for your loved ones.


When a loved one has passed, the responsibility of administering the estate and shepherding it through the probate process can be a difficult burden to take on. Most people are unfamiliar with the process of acting as an executor/estate administrator. Mark Rater is happy to help take that additional weight off of a loved one’s shoulders so they can focus on what matters most during a difficult time. Mark helps people understand what needs to be done and how to do it.

At Rater Law, Mark understands the impact our counsel can have for people who are facing estate planning issues. You and your family need the right advice and the right help to ensure that your needs are met now and in the future. Mark has the skill and experience necessary to help you with all of your issues.
