Probate and Trust Administrations

We assist families in administering estates after a death. In certain circumstances, a probate action is required in court to transfer assets to the deceased person’s heirs or beneficiaries. In cases where families have taken steps to avoid a probate, court filings may be avoided, but there may be other administrative matters required, such as filings of affidavits of survivorship. If you utilize a Trust for your estate plan, a Trust Administration is required to settle and distribute Trust assets after your death.
