Probate proceedings are anything but easy, but this does not mean that they should bring undue stress and financial losses. The goal of Probate.com is to bring helpful information and valuable resources to lawyers and non-lawyers alike. “We are not merely a probate legal directory (although we are excellent at that), but we are a living, changing, viable, up-to-date, ever-growing resource,” said Probate Partners, LLC founding partner Harvey E. Morse. “One click to our site is all it will take. Our site will offer everything that is needed for the probate specialist, estate planner and non-lawyer involved in a proceeding who has questions.”
Probate.com is owned by Probate Partners, LLC, a partnership between Harvey E. Morse, P.A. and Scorpion Design. When Harvey E. Morse, P.A., an international genealogical research firm, was looking for a technological partner to help them venture into this undertaking, it did not take them long to choose to work with Scorpion Design, a website design and marketing company based in Southern California.
When asked why he chose to work with Scorpion, Harvey E. Morse had this to say: “I wanted to associate with a dynamic group of people who are experienced with the Internet, who currently offer professional marketing services to the legal community, and who understand and share my vision.” He certainly found that in Scorpion Design and the two companies now work seamlessly in their new partnership.
“Scorpion is proud to be the technology partner for Probate.com,” said Scorpion Design CEO Rustin Kretz. “We saw a strong need to create a single source for all probate-related resources online, headlined by the ability to find a local probate attorney. With the initial launch of Probate.com, we have established a strong foundation to meet our goal of being the number one website for probate-related resources.”
While there are other probate-related websites out there, Probate Partners, LLC believes that what they have to offer is unique. “Probate and estate planning is such a vast and important field, I learned that there is no single place for a lawyer or a person involved in a probate proceeding to go to locate specialists in other states,” said Morse. “There is nowhere that there is a forum to make inquiries for both lawyers and non-lawyers, a place to find an estate realtor, a coin evaluator or where to turn when there are missing heirs. No such single resource has existed until now. Probate.com has codified the Internet fragments into one place.”
What can one expect to find when looking at the website? According to Morse, the better question would be what one wouldn’t be able to find. “As a lawyer, when probating a typical estate, one can expect to encounter the need for realtors, CPAs, valuators, appraisers, investigators to locate witnesses to Wills, experts who can locate missing heirs, funeral homes, tax specialists, and litigators to name a few, especially when a decedent owns property in multiple states, jurisdictions or countries.”
A visitor on the site would be able to find all of the above and in the future would even be able to find contact information for local probate courts, as well as employment opportunities. As Morse said, “It is my hope that Probate.Com will become recognized as an ultimate Internet ‘go-to’ site for any and everything probate, not only in the United States, but eventually worldwide.”
Probate.com looks to go where no site has gone before – providing more than a place to find a local attorney. Instead, the site looks to take every probate-related need and provide an answer. No matter who is looking, what they are looking for or what they expect to find, they can be confident knowing that the site will be there to meet their needs. Although the site is new, it is already rich with information that includes educational articles regarding probate stories, a place to ask questions to the experts and even videos discussing some of the most relevant topics.
Beyond the initial venture into creating the website, Probate Partners, LLC looks to support growth in the industry and to become a household name for anything probate-related. They are therefore proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of the 46th Annual Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning in January of 2012. This is widely considered to be one of the leading estate planning conferences in the. Probate Partners recognizes that it is not simple to deal with probate, but by sponsoring events such as this and strengthening their own contribution, they hope to provide a simpler process and readily accessible information.
