Probate is a legal process that begins with a petition to open an estate and name a personal representative who is responsible for the administration of the decedent’s property. We can assist in handing the public notice, creditor claim filing, debt payment and distribution of the remaining estate. Then a petition for discharge is filed and the estate is closed.
Sound simple? Probate law and the handling of estates is in fact a complex system which presents multiple requirements and tasks to be performed by the personal representative, an experienced attorney and a tax consultant.
Our attorneys are well-versed in all phases of trust and estate administration. We can also assist in charitable planning. Trusts and estate matters unfortunately sometimes give rise to disputes.
