When people die, their wills and estates need to be probated. Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person (a decedent or testator) by resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under the valid will. A surrogate court decides the validity of a testator’s will. A probate interprets the instructions of the deceased, decides the executor as the personal representative of the estate, and adjudicates the interests of heirs and other parties who may have claims against the estate.
We represent estates through the probate process as well as heirs and other parties who have claims against the estate or wish to contest the descendant’s will. For more information about our services, visit our satellite website.
