The loss of a loved one can be one of the most difficult times in life. Our compassionate and experienced attorneys can assist you through the entire probate and trust administration process in order to ensure that the wishes of your loved one are properly carried out.
Probate is a court supervised process of administering a decedent’s estate after death. Our attorneys can assist you with the process of probate, from opening the estate administration with the court through inventorying and distributing the decedent’s assets, preparing and filing necessary estate and income tax returns, and concluding the estate administration in the most efficient manner.
If a decedent has a revocable living trust in place at the time of death, the trust administration process takes the place of the probate proceeding. Similar to probate, the trust administration process includes inventorying and distributing the trust’s assets, preparing and filing necessary estate and income tax returns, and concluding the trust administration in the most efficient manner.
