Probate & Trust Administration
When a loved one passes away, probate is the legal process used to locate, value and distribute their property. Probate generally takes place in the jurisdiction where the deceased person lived, or if the person lived out of state, in the city where the person’s real property is located.
Probate can be a long and complicated process that can last several months to well over a year to complete. The process is made even more difficult because the family is in the process grieving the loss of a loved one.
We have extensive experience handling all aspects of probate administration. We can guide your family through the process from start to finish and help you manage the often-confusing document filings, publications, and court hearings required. This will allow you to focus on what is most important – coming to terms with the loss of your loved one.
