Estate Administration, Probate & Family Law

Estate Administration

Our firm's Estate Administration services include petitioning for the allowance of wills and trusts, appointment of personal representatives and trustees, preparing and filing inventories and accounts, preparing estate tax returns, selling real and personal property, and advising with respect to payment of creditors and distributions of estate assets to the beneficiaries. In cases where a trust is to take effect upon death, we advise with respect to funding and all aspects of trust administration.

Our attorneys are experienced in serving as personal representatives, trustees, guardians and conservators and can serve in any of these roles if requested by the client.

We also handle related trust and estate litigation. This litigation includes the validity or interpretation of wills and trusts, and the appointment of the personal representatives, trustee or guardian or conservator.
