Probate and Estate Administration

If you have recently lost a loved one or you are the personal representative of an estate, it is important to understand your rights and legal obligations as you proceed to settle the estate. If your loved one dies in Massachusetts with a will, we will assist you with the probate process. Probate and estate administration involve transfer of assets to rightful heirs and filing of accounts with the court. If your loved one dies without a will, we are experienced in handling estate administration from identifying assets and debts through distribution and taxes.
