Estate and Probate Administration
After a person dies, everything from their estate must be transferred to his or her heirs and beneficiaries. We work with administrators and executors to handle all aspects of probate administration.
Many clients are afraid of the probate process, fearing it will be difficult or overwhelming. When clients work with us, we give them the guidance they need to file forms, address tax concerns, pay bills and value all assets. The probate process is highly regulated, and there are strict deadlines and guidelines that must be followed.
When a loved one can no longer properly care for him or herself, it is sometimes necessary for a guardian to be appointed. We are experienced in assisting guardians with court filings and with understanding and carrying out their obligations to their loved one.
