Helping You Navigate The Complexities Of The Law

Our team of attorneys at Barney McKenna & Olmstead focuses in more than estate and probate law, and we are licensed to practice in states across the southwest. Our attorneys are uniquely qualified to handle real estate complexities, business interests and assets located in more than one state.

Personal representatives and trustees are fiduciaries. As fiduciary laws continue to grow and evolve, our attorneys can help personal representatives and trustees fulfill their duties prudently and effectively. We also help clients navigate through contentious matters involving disputes over probate and trust administration, wills, and other estate planning issues that require litigation.

Have A Strong Case? We Offer Flexible Payment Options.

When your rights are at stake and someone has seriously wronged you after your loved one has passed, we work with you to offer representation you can afford.

If your case is strong enough, we will take it on a contingency fee basis. Contingency rates vary depending on the strength of your case and the size of the estate, and all attorney's fees come from the estate itself — so you don't pay out of pocket for an attorney.

While our main office is located in St. George, our attorneys are licensed to practice across the southwest — including Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and California. If you are struggling with the legal process following the loss of a loved one, call our offices at 435-628-1711 to get started, or reach out online to schedule an initial consultation.
