Estate Probate and Administration
Dealing with the distribution of property after the death of a loved one can be an emotional and complex process. The estate administration process during the probate of an estate encompasses many tasks, and without the help of an experienced probate lawyer, may prove difficult, especially for grieving relatives. We work to provide the legal knowledge and information necessary to complete the probate process as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
During probate, there is always the potential for disputes involving assets as they are distributed between beneficiaries. Pelella Law P.C. provides experience and knowledge to resolve these disputes as efficiently as possible. In many instances, there may be several options for you and the other beneficiaries that are not immediately apparent. We can discuss these options with you and explain their impact on you and the assets in question.
The goal of estate planning is to ensure that your assets are transferred to your loved-ones with the least amount of legal fees, taxes, and court costs as possible. If you postpone planning until it is too late, you run the risk that your intended beneficiaries—the people you love the most—may not receive what you would want them to receive Our firm can help you with comprehensive estate planning services, including drafting living wills, powers of attorney and healthcare proxies, to ensure that your property goes to the people you want. If you or a loved one needs to start planning their estate, contact us today.
