The Probate Process

Probate is a process whereby a court considers whether a Will is valid and should be accepted. Probate courts also supervise the administration of estates where there is no Will. They see to that property is appropriately transferred from the deceased to the people mentioned in the Will or, where the decedent dies, without a Will, to the next of kin. Probate can be a complicated process. If a loved one, family member or friend has died, you should meet with an experienced Probate Lawyer to discuss the various legal issues and problems that need to be addressed. Our experienced New York City & Long Island Probate Lawyers are available to assist you.

Why You Should Hire an Estate Administration Attorney

There are numerous reasons to seek assistance with the administration of an estate. Some of the more common reasons include the following:

  • Avoiding family squabbles and resentment: In many situations, a relative of the deceased is appointed executor or estate administrator. Often, other family members begin to question their motives and scrutinize every move and payment of every expense. Although an appointee may be doing his or her best to follow the wishes of the deceased, family members may harbor suspicion. We have seen many families broken because of a misinterpretation of an action or a suspicious family member.
  • Efficiency and economics: The laws regarding the distribution of an estate can be complex. Engaging an experienced attorney to assist you in administering the estate will help you work more efficiently and cost-effectively.
  • Assistance if trouble arises: Although your intent is honorable, someone may elect to contest a will or accuse you of a breach of a fiduciary duty. If this occurs, we are there to assist you. Our experience shows that if we are involved from the beginning, the likelihood of a complaint decreases and the cost of any litigation is substantially reduced.
