Trust Administration

Administering a trust after a loved one’s death is an enormous responsibility. In fact, many trust administrators are not in the best position to handle these duties. First, the death of a loved one is an emotional, sometimes

overwhelming time for family members. Second, administering a trust involves a number of unique tasks. If you have never done this before, you may not know where to begin.

Probate Law

Many people have heard of probate, but few know what it is until they are actually required to act as executor or administrator of an estate. Probate is a court-supervised procedure in which the deceased’s property is inventoried, the deceased’s debts are paid, and the deceased’s property is distributed to the beneficiaries.

Many estates require probate. For example, if the deceased has assets valued over $150,000 and does not have a living trust, the estate will most likely go through the probate procedure – even if a will exists.

We believe that the combination of our assistance and a well-informed executor helps the process proceed as smoothly and quickly possible.
