Our attorneys have experience in all aspects of the administration of the estates and trusts of decedents.   The administration process may involve identifying and paying a decedent’s final debts, managing or selling a decedent’s assets such as real property or a business, and finally, distributing those assets to the persons entitled to them.  We provide personal attention to our fiduciary clients to make sure they properly manage and distribute trust or estate assets while minimizing personal liability.

We also handle any guardianship situation which may arise. We assist our clients in establishing guardianships, and filing required annual reports with the courts, petitions for permission, and documents required to terminate a guardianship when it is no longer necessary.

We aim to effectively and efficiently handle estate and guardianship planning and administration. Our Probate Litigation Practice Group Attorneys are prepared to represent our clients should the need for litigation arise if a Will or Trust is contested.
