Probate/Estate Administration

If a loved one passes away, our experienced attorneys will ensure that as the estate goes through a court-managed process called probate, we will make sure that the assets of the deceased are appropriately managed and distributed.

The Probate process is overseen by the courts to ensure deceased individual(s) have their estate/assets properly handled and eventually transferred to the heirs or designated persons/organizations. Trust administration is the process of managing the assets which are held in a trust.
