Mistakes Can Be Costly

Estate executors and administrators undertake many fiduciary duties when closing an estate, and a single error in the process could drain estate assets, as well as cause dispute among family members.

Our attorneys can help make the process as smooth as possible by providing counsel and representation in all of the following matters:

  • Determining whether probate is necessary (use of trusts can sometimes allow estates to avoid probate)
  • Obtaining a copy of the will and filing it with the probate court
  • Notifying government agencies, banks and credit card companies of the decedent's death
  • Creating and filing a detailed inventory of estate assets
  • Setting up a bank account for any incoming funds
  • Payment of any outstanding bills
  • Payment of estate taxes and debts
  • Distribution of assets to heirs and beneficiaries
  • Representing executors and administrators in probate court
