Most of the estates our firm represents are large and typically involve the sale of real estate and other assets.We will help prepare the house, secure the property and place it on the market, prepare the contracts of sale and complete the transaction. We will protect your inheritance and ensure the fiduciary complies with the law so you will not pay more than necessary.
Our law firm will do as much, or as little as you need. As our client, you can rest assured we will be there for the times when you are not sure what to do.We work with selected professionals, who can assist you or our office on your behalf to secure, repair, renovate or sell a home or anything else that is needed to serve the estate and its heirs as effectively as possible.
.After gathering the estate assets, we prepare the necessary papers prior to distribution, ensuring that all claims, debts and expenses including commissions that you earn as a fiduciary are paid, and file necessary documents with the court to close the estate.
If you are the beneficiary, we will scrutinize what the fiduciary has done to make sure the estate was not taken advantage.
