Trusted Representation For Probate Matters

Probate Administration Services

When a person dies, ownership of their property, called their "estate", must pass to the decedent's heirs or beneficiaries, who become the property's new owners. This process is often referred to informally as "probate", although that term in its technical sense only applies to the procedure for judicial approval of a will.

The probate process first requires the identification of a decedent's heirs and beneficiaries, either by probating the will or by other judicial proceeding. Once that is accomplished, it is usually necessary to obtain the court appointment of an estate administrator (executor) who will supervise and carry out the property transfer. The administrator has several duties, which include taking control of the decedent's property, paying or settling unpaid taxes and debts, and distributing remaining estate property to heirs and beneficiaries.

Our firm has many years of experience in all aspects of the probate and estate administration process. Regardless of whether you are a prospective executor or a prospective heir, we can advise and assist you.
