We offer initial consultations to help you understand the probate process and answer any questions you may have. Our experienced team will provide you with clear guidance on what to expect and how to proceed.
Probate can occur in the absence of a will, when the will is contested, and in other specific situations. The process involves the legal administration of the estate of a person who has died including accounting for property, paying off any debts, and distributing the remaining assets. If you need to contest a will or trust or defend your interests in an estate dispute, the team at Amanda Todd Daniels has the expertise needed to make sure your best interests are protected.
When a person is incapacitated and can no longer conduct his or her affairs, a conservatorship may be the best solution. A conservatorship gives a designated individual the authority to make certain decisions for the incapacitated individual. A financial conservator makes financial decisions and pays bills for the individual. Our legal team can advise you and help you decide if a conservatorship best fits your needs.
Unlike a conservatorship, a power of attorney (POA) is created before a person becomes incapacitated. A POA must be created by a person who is competent at the time the document is created. However, a durable POA may continue to be in effect after the individual becomes incapacitated.
A power of attorney allows an individual to designate someone (called the attorney-in-fact) to act as his or her representative in specific situations. For example, an individual may delegate all financial powers and responsibilities to a designated person, using a power of attorney, so that if that individual becomes incapacitated, the attorney-in-fact can make necessary decisions for them.

“I have known Amanda in the community for a while now. Recently I needed some delicate legal matters handled and I reached out to Amanda's office for guidance. Amanda handled my legal matters with professionalism and attentiveness. I can be a worrier and probably followed up with my case more than I should, but Amanda or her secretary Donna never made me feel like an inconvenience. Although my legal matters are personal and private, I can say that Amanda is extremely knowledgeable on handling LGBTQ issues which is quiet refreshing considering she is located in a small southern town. Amanda spoke to me with the utmost respect and courtesy. For anyone in the North Mississippi area (or greater) looking for a law office that can handle things, especially anyone in the LGBTQ community, please reach out to her office.” – Casey Thompson
