Probate & Estate Administration
Probate is the legal process where the court assigns someone to administer and distribute assets after a person’s death. Some estates, including those with a high value or with complex assets are more complicated and time consuming to probate. The processes of both probate and estate administration can be very complicated for those who are appointed as an estate’s administrator, and often require an in-depth analysis of the decedent’s estate, especially when property, a business, and retirement accounts are involved.
