Probate

Probate is the court-supervised procedure for transferring assets and paying debts upon your death pursuant to your Will, or, if you have no Will, by the laws of intestacy.  A personal representative is appointed to administer the decedent’s estate.  A probate proceeding includes identifying the decedent’s heirs, collecting the decedent’s assets, paying debts and claims against the estate, filing the estate’s tax returns, and distributing the remaining assets as directed by your Will, or by law if there is no Will.

We can help with every step of this process, from the appointment of a personal representative to the preparation of the most complex estate tax returns.
