Wills, Trusts & Estate Administration
It can be daunting to navigate the legal and administrative issues that arise after a family member or other loved one passes away.
There's much responsibility as the executor, personal representative or trustee of a loved one’s estate or trust. First, the will must be recorded and assets located. As the executor, you may be also required to file accountings with the probate office of a local court, coordinate the preparation of taxes and then gather and administer your loved one’s belongings and property.
Our attorneys regularly counsel executors, trustees and other fiduciaries about the tasks, issues and concerns that may arise in the course of estate administration. We can help you navigate issues such as:
Oversee estate assets
Give notice to beneficiaries and creditors
Handle specific directions set forth in the will (ex: codicil)
Manage beneficiaries who contest a will and administration of trust assets
For decades, our attorneys have worked with estates and trusts of all sizes. We are compassionate, smart and efficient. If you need assistance fulfilling your loved one’s last wishes, managing the administration of a loved one’s estate or navigating the probate system, please contact our estate administration team.
