The term “probate” refers to court protective proceedings. Those include guardianships, conservatorships, administration of estates belonging to deceased persons, Will and trust contests, and court supervision of the administration of a trust, or the removal, when necessary of trustees who have failed to complete their duties as the trustee or who have breached their fiduciary duties to the beneficiaries of a trust.
If someone you love has passed away and you are unsure of your rights under the law, please submit a case summary through our website to schedule an appointment. If you have been named as the Executor of a Will or as the Trustee of a Trust, please allow us to help you through the process of administering your loved one’s estate.
ADMINISTRATION OF ESTATES:
