Probate & Trust Administrations

Not every estate or trust has problems requiring litigation. Our firm can assist you with the process of probating a loved one’ s will or administering their trust estate. This process may involve: administering creditor’s claims, the preparation of accountings, inventories and appraisals; preparation of distribution orders; negotiating with counsel retained by beneficiaries; providing appropriate statutory notifications; determining funding allocations between various sub-trusts; preparation of the Form 706 (federal estate tax return) and advising trustees and executors how best to proceed in order to avoid litigation.
