Probate, Estate And Trust Administration

If you have been named an administrator of an estate, we will guide you through the probate process and oversee all issues related to the settlement of the estate. We are deeply familiar with the probate process, the documents required and the courts.

As our client, you will be represented by a lawyer who has a background in tax law and a thorough understanding of the financial issues involved in settling an estate. If a guardianship or conservatorship is appropriate, we will handle all matters related to establishing one and represent you in the court proceedings. We are adept at working with family members, beneficiaries, the state, financial institutions and other parties with an interest in the estate.

If your loved one has recently passed, we recommend taking some time to grieve before you embark on the probate process.
