Routine Administrations

Dealing with the loss or incapacity of a loved one is emotional and difficult. The last thing you want to be burdened with is disagreements among surviving family members while you are trying to resolve and settle your deceased loved one’s financial affairs.

Even in undisputed estates, complex issues arise: assets are difficult to identify or sell, unexpected debts surface, and/or impatient beneficiaries demand premature distributions.

We regularly represent fiduciaries such as independent executors, independent administrators, and dependent administrators in estate administrations, as well as estate beneficiaries who have concerns about the estate administration process.

We also guide guardians of the person and guardians of the estate through the process of a guardianship administration. If you need counsel, we are experienced in estate and guardianship administrations and would be glad to talk with you about navigating the waters of such routine administrations.
