Probate & Administration

Probate & Administration

When a loved one passes, the last thing you want to deal with are the legal complexities of probate and managing the financial affairs of the deceased’s estate. Our attorneys help shoulder that burden for you by providing reliable counsel to executors and trusts.

Our probate attorneys work closely with family members to ensure an orderly administration of each estate, including probate of the will, valuation of estate assets, payment of debts and expenses, preparation of federal estate and income tax returns and distribution of assets to estate beneficiaries.

When advising trustees, we help them understanding their fiduciary duties to the trust beneficiaries, advise them on tax and legal decisions, and provide wise-counsel to communicate effectively with beneficiaries to avoid misunderstandings and family disharmony.

Where appropriate, our attorneys serve as executors, administrators, or trustees.
