Our probate administration attorneys represent executors of estates throughout New York.

There are a lot of responsibilities that come with being named the executor of another person’s estate—and likely a lot of stress. We can help you make sense of this often-complicated role and avoid unnecessary delays, common mistakes, and the possibility of personal liability that comes with being executor.

In addition to our work in New York, we also represent personal representatives of estates throughout Florida.

Experienced, comprehensive, knowledgeable

We provide sophisticated planning services to minimize costs, protect the interests of heirs, and minimize taxation. Our lawyers represent executors and beneficiaries in disputes over wills and trusts that may arise during the probate process. We also supervise the probate proceeding to protect the interests of beneficiaries.

When is probate required?

When a person dies in New York, some of his or her assets may need to go through the probate process. Our attorneys will review the assets of your family member's estate and determine which assets, if any, need to go through the probate process. All of the assets your family member owned must be collected and distributed to those who are entitled to receive them, whether under the supervision of the probate court or not. Debts and taxes of the deceased must also be paid.
