Trust Administration & Probate
If your family has experienced the loss of a family member, we can assist you with the legal process that occurs when a loved one passes away.
Probate Administration and Estate Settlement– We represent personal representatives in advising and guiding them in fulfilling their responsibilities in settling decedent’s estates including: the preparation and filing of documents in the appropriate probate court; collecting, inventorying and distributing estate assets; settling claims against the estate; preparation of estate tax returns; preparation and review of accountings; and interpretation of wills. We also represent other heirs of decedent’s estates with respect to protecting their interests in the estate, pursing will contests, and raising any objections that they may have to the current administration of the estate.
Trust Administration– Our attorneys counsel trustees with respect to the performance of their duties and their asset allocation, investment, tax and accounting responsibilities. We also can represent and advise trust beneficiaries with respect to their trust interests. We also assist with the interpretation of trust provisions and resolving disputes relating to trust administration and other trust related issues.
