Probate & Estate Administration

Probate is often misunderstood, with many negative associations. Simply put, probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a person who has died, during which time the County Register of Wills oversees the distribution of assets and settles any disputes, should they arise. For those without proper counsel, this process can be overwhelming, complex and intrusive. There are documents that must be filed in a timely manner. Specific details and records must be included with such documents. Our attorneys are dedicated to ensuring that this process is seamless and straightforward. When appropriate, we work with accountants and financial experts.
