The loss of a family member or loved one is a difficult and stressful circumstance. This stress is compounded by the cumbersome and time-consuming legal and administrative steps that can be necessary to take after one’s passing. Our attorneys can advise on what administrative steps may be necessary, including small estate affidavits, formal and informal testate probate (if your loved one had a will at the time of passing), or formal and informal intestate probate (if your loved one did not have a will).
Our legal services include assisting personal representatives and trustees in all administrative steps required by the court and applicable state agencies, resolution of creditor claims, and distribution of assets in accordance with the relevant testamentary documents.
The firm also advises interested parties in existing estates to ensure that their rights and interests are being adequately met.
