Estate Administration to Handle Your Loved Ones’ Affairs

Estate administration involves settling a deceased person’s estate. While almost every estate requires some services of a lawyer, many tasks can be performed by a layperson, with guidance from the lawyer. This also helps to keep legal fees paid by the estate to a minimum.

We can help you:

  • Probate a will
  • Qualify as a personal representative
  • Pay debts
  • Settle disputes
  • Sell real or personal property
  • Fund and administer a trust
  • Manage and liquidate the decedent’s business
  • Make tax elections
  • File federal and state income and estate tax returns
  • File an inventory and annual accountings with the Court
  • Distribute assets to beneficiaries
