The attorneys at Craig S. Redler & Associates, LLC. recognize the emotional difficulty our clients face when a loved one has passed away. Probate is the process by which a person’s debts are paid and the remaining assets titled in the decedent’s name are distributed upon their death. In essence, probate is a legal process that occurs after death and provides for the legal transfer of probate assets to beneficiaries designated in a will or by the state if no will exists. Consulting a firm with expertise in this area of the law is important to ensure that assets are distributed correctly.
During the probate process, we aid the personal representative or executor by identifying and inventorying property which must pass through probate, ensuring that all estate debts are paid including all expenses of administration and taxes, ensuring that property is distributed as directed by a will, and accounting to the Probate court or beneficiaries for the collection and distribution of probate assets.
The attorneys at Craig S. Redler & Associates, LLC. also have extensive experience in probate litigation. We represent executors, administrators, trustees, beneficiaries, general and limited partners, and other individuals and entities in will contests, actions for breach of fiduciary duties, accountings and petitions for partition of real property.
Our attorneys ensure that each probate estate is managed efficiently and in accordance with the decedent’s wishes.
