Probate & Trust Administration

When a loved one dies or becomes disabled, taking care of the person’s property can create severe stress and anxiety. Unfortunately, many families are left with greater stress and confusion after the funeral or when a loved one is severely injured. Complicated questions arise, such as:

  • What can we do to take care of a person’s property and finances after they have become disabled?
  • What do you do with a person’s property after they died if they didn’t leave a will?
  • Even though a will is created, what do we do next?
  • A trust was established, how do we administer it?
  • How do we minimize the estate taxes and make sure we don’t forget anything?
  • How do we divide the property up fairly?
  • I think I deserve more than I received as an inheritance or from the trust, what can I do?
  • I have been appointed as the Personal Representative and/or Trustee, what must I do?
  • The creditors are calling and wanting to be paid, do I have to pay them?
  • Do I need an attorney if the assets are less than $50,000?
  • Do I have to go to court if there is a will?

We can help you. We understand the stressful situation you are in and guide you to the right solution. Whether there is a will or no will, a trust, or disability, there are many complicated legal rules to comply with.
