Probate & Trust Administration

Probate is the court administered system of appointing a personal representative to administer and distribute the decedent’s estate. Our attorneys have the experience necessary to represent the personal representative and lead him or her through the court process and help to avoid the mistakes that so often lead to disputes among the decedent’s survivors. We also have a lot of experience preparing the state and federal estate tax returns for the larger sized estates. If the decedent’s estate plan establishes long term trusts instead of outright distribution, we guide the personal representative in funding these trusts upon the decedent’s death and assist them in their role as trustee of these trusts.
