Probate & Estate Administration Lawyer

When we administer an estate or will, we make sure that every step possible is taken to assure the decedent’s intentions are carried out, in accordance with the law. We have years of probate and estate administration experience. We understand the time commitment and challenges associated with proper probate administration, and will help you through every step of the probate process to reduce the stress and sense of obligation you may be feeling.

In addition, there are often summary estate administration procedures that sometimes apply to allow you to bypass the probate process altogether in appropriate circumstances. Finally, we also handle Living Trust administrations. Surprisingly to most people, other lawyers and some CPAs, there is much to do from a post death adminstration standpoint when the owner of the trust dies.
