Customer Question

My son die 6/16/2016 in Chicago, IL. He did not have a will, which makes me his beneficiary. At one time he worked for Disney in Florida. I contacted them and his credit union trying to settle any outstanding accounts and they told me I need to contact a lawyer. I don't know what to do at this point. Is this the proper procedure? I live in Michigan.

I am very sorry to hear of your tragic loss;

can you please tell me- approximately the size of his estate, and if there is any real estate involved, as that may affect the proper procedure.
