When a loved one passes, they leave behind assets that need to be collected, managed and distributed. Probate is the court process that determines if a Will is genuine. Estate Administration involves collecting the assets of the estate, paying the decedent’s debts and distributing the remaining assets. Our Firm will counsel its clients through this process and provide guidance during court proceedings.
A Trust is a fiduciary relationship in which the trustee holds legal title to property for the benefit of beneficiaries who hold equitable title. The trustee has a fiduciary duty to manage, invest, safeguard and administer trust assets. Our Firm can help its clients manage wealth preservation and distribution involved in such Trusts.
Probate Litigation involves resolving Probate disputes through the court system. One common dispute involves determining the validity of a decedent’s Will. Our Firm will review the merits of each client’s case and zealously advocate for them.
