Probate Administration

Our Firm assists clients with the administration of probates, estates and trusts.  The Firm advises trustees, personal representatives, beneficiaries, heirs, creditors, and other fiduciaries in administrative matters.  The Firm handles estates and trusts of all sizes and complexities.  We also have considerable experience handling probates, estates and trusts with real estate, business interests, and assets located in more than one state.


We guide the administrative process to get matters handled as quickly and efficiently as possible with the best possible outcome, whether taxes or liquidity are issues, or there are contentious family relationships at play.


Personal representatives and trustees are fiduciaries.  In that capacity, one must act with the highest standard of care.  As fiduciary laws continue to evolve and increase in complexity, our attorneys can help the fiduciary fulfill his or her duties prudently and effectively.  We will also help clients through contentious matters involving disputes over trust and probate administration, wills, and other estate planning issues that require litigation.

  • Probate of Estates, Informal and Formal
  • Small Estate Affidavits
  • Administration of Trusts and Estates
  • Fiduciary Duties
