Estate Administration

Probate and Estate Administration Attorneys in Southern California

Estate administration involves the management of a deceased individual’s property.Simply stated, the administering of an an estate is the process of finding and gathering the assets, paying the debts and taxes, and distributing the assets to the heirs. To those suddenly thrown into this process, this seemingly “simple” process can be filled with the pitfalls of ignored and unfilled tax returns, overlooked creditors, and missed deadlines that can cost the estate money and lost opportunities. Add to that the personal liability and Fiduciary responsibilities of a newly-appointed Executor, the likelihood of a Will contest, and a “simple” estate administration quickly goes from simple to complicated.

We can act as Executor or partner as legal counsel to the Appointed Executor

Death, whether foreseeable or not, is always a devastating experience. In the midst of this emotional turmoil, one or more persons will be named as the Executor, Administrator or Trustee, and upon this “responsible person” the burden will fall of administering the estate. Following the death of family member, or following the death of a business partner, the guidance, advice, and counsel of an experienced probate law attorney is an essential tool that will ensure that the assets of the estate are successfully transferred to the Beneficiaries according to law and in accord with the decedent’s legally documented wishes in Fiduciary and timely manner.

We routinely assist Executors in fulfilling their Fiduciary responsibilities to the Estates. Our attorneys, paralegals and staff are experienced in finding and gathering all of a decedent’s assets and placing them under the control of the Executor by having title changed to the estate. We can assist or prepare an estate tax return which is often necessary in the 12 to 24 month period of administration. Because of our experience, we are able to efficiently conclude an estate administration by managing the distribution of the assets to the beneficiaries so that the complex responsibilities of the Executor can be concluded as quickly as possible.
