It is never easy when a loved one passes away. Many times the sadness and grief of losing a loved one can be compounded by the questions and uncertainty of how to wind up your loved ones personal and financial affairs, and ultimately how to arrange for the orderly transfer of your loved one’s assets to the intended recipients.
At Phillips Law Firm, Inc., our attorneys and staff have the knowledge, experience, and compassion to guide your family through this process known as Estate Administration or Probate. The Probate court is the fundamental vehicle for estate administration and the transfer of assets. However, trusts, life insurance, and retirement accounts that are managed outside of the Probate process also require attention. Meeting deadlines, notifying creditors and beneficiaries, identifying all assets, and filing the proper documents with the Probate court are all key components of the Probate and Estate Administration process.
Phillips Law Firm, Inc. can help guide your family through the estate administration process in a timely and cost-effective manner. Whether the estate is small, large, simple, or complex, we can help you.
