When a loved one dies, we can assist in administering the estate in a practical, organized, efficient, and sensitive way to reduce stress on those involved. We will open a probate estate if required, supervise the preparation of estate tax returns, and take the many other steps needed to insure that everything is handled properly and in full compliance with the law and the estate plan. Our Business Law practice gives us the resources and expertise to handle administration of business interests and other assets, and we can assist with the disposition of Real Estate if needed.

We represent both individuals and financial institutions that act as executors. Often, an individual executor has not filled this role before; we understand the process and can provide needed guidance. We also work closely with financial advisors, accountants, and other professionals, so that each can perform their appropriate services for the estate where it is most efficient and cost-effective.
