Our Attorneys Can Assist in Settling an Estate
Assuming responsibility for settling an estate belonging to a family member can seem overwhelming. Most administrators of estates find it important — and necessary — to consult with attorneys as they approach the process of probate administration. The same is typically true with regard to trusts. Attempting to settle an estate without a lawyer's guidance can result in mistakes that will ultimately require litigation to resolve.
