Our knowledgeable probate and trust attorneys are conscientious, caring, and empathetic, completing the probate process as swiftly and as economically, as possible. Probate legal services include counseling personal representatives, opening and administering the probate estate, distributing estate assets, and ensuring federal and state estate taxes are properly addressed including filing estate tax returns if needed.
After an estate plan is created, our legal team can assist with asset transfers, including real property transfers to fund the trust. Trustees have fiduciary duties to administer the trust; these duties and are based on powers given to them in the trust. We counsel trustees as to their fiduciary duties as well provide guidance for collection, management and distribution of trust assets to beneficiaries.
