Providing counsel throughout the estate administration process.
After an individual dies, the estate must be administered, including paying creditors, filing the will, creating an inventory of the property, paying taxes, notifying beneficiaries, and distributing assets. Our legal team assists our clients to navigate through the many steps required to safeguard the estate and trust administration. We help clients probate wills (or initiate an administration proceeding if there is no will), prepare all necessary estate tax returns, administer and manage trusts, and advise on related income tax matters.
A.Y. Strauss handles your estate and trust administration needs at each step, including:
• Intestate will administration
• Preparation and settlement of fiduciaries’ accounts
• Trust administration
• Will probate
