Upon the death of a loved one, the administration of their Estate, both when there is a Will and when there is no Will (Intestacy), can be stressful and full of unknown responsibilities and decisions.  “We can assist the parties in the appointment  of the Personal Representative, the administration of the Estate (collecting assets, paying claims, filing fiduciary tax returns, and determining inheritance rights), as well as represent a beneficiary. We can also assist in the facilitation of family meetings or meetings of the beneficiaries to negotiate claims, thus minimizing the expense to the estate in the case of a Will contest or disagreement between the parties.
