Quality Representation For Out-Of-State Clients

Key Schoen Law Handles Probate And Litigation Matters For Clients Who Cannot Be Present

Today's mobile society results in family members and friends living thousands of miles away. Often, an executor of a Kentucky estate lives in another state and cannot be present for the Probate process. At Key Schoen Law, we can help out-of-state clients tackle the significant responsibilities that come with serving as executor of an estate. In most cases, Key Schoen can eliminate the need for a personal representative to return to Kentucky.

"I have been a practicing attorney since 1990, and have always been involved with litigation. I have been focused on estate litigation and administration for more than a decade. That focus and my 25 years of litigation experience separate me from other lawyers who provide Probate services."
— Attorney Key Schoen

Conversely, a decedent who lived in another state may have owned real estate or other property in Kentucky at the time of his or her death. While the main Probate process will be in the state where the decedent lived at the time of death, an ancillary Probate proceeding must be held in Kentucky to disburse the assets held here. I represent individuals who must navigate the ancillary Probate process in order to distribute property that is titled in Kentucky.

Key Schoen Law also represents out-of-state residents who wish to contest a Will or Trust, challenge the management of a Trust, or question any aspect of the Probate process in connection with a decedent.

An Advocate In Your Absence

"Today's technology allows me to match the personalized service that I provide my clients who work with me in my Louisville office to those who live out of state. It is reassuring for my long-distance clients to know they will work directly with me from the initial telephone consultation through the resolution of their cases. Rarely is there reason for them to return to Kentucky."
— Attorney Key Schoen
