Probate of Estates & Trust Administration
The process of probating the estate of a Massachusetts resident is a year-long process that requires navigating the the courts, the Department of Revenue, and IRS, creditors, tax laws, real estate laws, and family relationships. We have decades of experience representing hundreds of estates throughout Massachusetts, from small, simple estates to complicated Wills and Trusts and Will contests.
If you are named as the Executor (now called "Personal Representative") in the Will of a loved one, or Trustee of a loved one's Trust, we can provide guidance through the process of administration and afterwards. Alternately, if you are the beneficiary of a loved-one's Will or Trust and have questions about protecting your interests or someone else's administration, we can advise you about your rights and obligations.
