Nashville Probate Lawyers

Hardeman & Montgomery does not try to be a full-service general practice law firm, offering every type of legal service available!

Instead, we focus on doing a few complex things and doing them really well — probate and estate administration, and creating wills and trusts.

It's a common problem. A mother or father has died, and you're not sure what happens next. Where is the will? Does it need to go through probate? What is involved?

  • A hands-on approach: When you hire Hardeman & Montgomery you only deal with Greg Hardeman and Kevin Montgomery.
  • Familiar faces at the courthouse: We know the local probate courts and they know us as professional, ethical and effective.

Assertive when we need to be, but always thorough ... that's Hardeman & Montgomery, of Nashville, Tennessee.
