Estate, Probate, And Trust Administration
We advise personal representatives through the probate process to make sure all estate administration tasks are completed like marshalling assets, paying creditors, selling real property, preparing an accounting, and distributing the assets so the Estate is closed in a timely manner.
We assist Trustees with carrying out their duties, such as sending out the required notices and preparation of accountings, which can be a burdensome and overwhelming process. Our goal is to make sure our clients’ responsibilities and rights are clearly outlined, protected, and addressed throughout the process so that they are not subject to any liability.
