Estate Planning & Probate
Are you familiar with Scottsdale’s Jack Knife, the bucking horse with rider in the Arts District? Ed Mell’s well-known sculpture may be a welcoming sight for visitors, but it is also a metaphor for a life in chaos, even crisis. Is everything in your personal life rocking up-and-down, swinging side-to-side, and moving back-and-forth despite your best efforts to regain control? Hanging on for this wild ride may be difficult. Don’t let go! Hand over the reins so we can help.
With the Stewart Law Group, you will never have to worry about being kept apprised of new developments in the case. We keep our clients informed on every discovery matter, every legal motion and hearing, every court proceeding, and every judicial ruling and decision. If trial is necessary, we will prepare you for that, too.
Every client’s case is unique. And every case presents unique challenges. We believe each of our clients deserves the best legal advice available from a lawyer who has years of experience in that practice area. To be hiring a professional who is both knowledgeable of the law and respectful of that individual’s situation.
Mutual respect builds trust. And trust is crucial for productive communications between attorney and client. No one deserves a dressing down for having made a mistake. For not having gotten a Will prepared sooner. For wanting a divorce. Or for believing the other parent would be a better custodian for the children. Everyone is different and everyone deserves respect.
At the Stewart Law group, we are passionate about our work in the Scottsdale community. Known for superb negotiating skills and legal stratagems, our attorneys are always prepared to turn up the heat when trial is necessary to protect our client’s rights and interests. That is always so, whether we represent a parent in a dispute over legal decision-making authority (child custody); the economically disadvantaged spouse in a complicated divorce and property division; or the claimant-heir in the contested probate of the decedent’s estate.
Our job description includes litigating matters that could not be resolved consensually by agreement between our clients and opposing parties. We take our professional responsibilities seriously and are proud of the good results we obtain for our clients.
When we provide family law, divorce, estate planning, or probate representation, our clients have confidence knowing they will be prepared and expertly guided through every civil, probate court proceeding or estate planning matter. That means being represented in settlement negotiations, discovery, pre-trial hearings, conciliation counseling and mediation preparation, trial, post-judgment motion practice, reconsiderations, and appeals. Attorneys with the Stewart Law Group do everything in their power to obtain the best possible results for our clients.
Generally, there are three courts where cases are heard, depending upon the type the subject matter. They are the Scottsdale City Court, Superior Court, and U.S. District Court.
For most of our Scottsdale clients, their civil, probate, and criminal proceedings are initiated either in the Superior Court in Maricopa County or in Scottsdale City Court. Divorces and family law cases are within the exclusive jurisdiction of the Superior Court. Collateral matters relating to the main criminal prosecution or family law case, such as an order of protection, may be handed in Scottsdale Municipal Court.
