If you are the executor of a will, we can help you through the process of applying for and obtaining probate. If someone in your family has died without a will, we can assist in obtaining letters of administration so that the estate can be administered.
Our lawyers frequently act as executors of estates. By doing so, we act as an independent and neutral administrator of an estate, ensuring your assets are distributed according to your wishes and avoiding conflict between family members. We also act as trustees for minor or disabled beneficiaries.
We know that disputes involving wills, estates and trusts often involve conflict among family members. We work to resolve disputes by negotiation and mediation, saving time, money and hurt feelings whenever possible.
