Estate Administration Lawyer
People serving as administrators of their loved ones’ estate turn to my Silicon Valley law firm, Lawrence T. Ullmann, Attorney At Law. I am prepared to help you during an emotionally difficult time to ensure your family member’s wishes are honored.
Estate Administration In California
In California, before a deceased person’s estate can be distributed, it must pass through probate court. Depending on the nature and extent of the deceased’s assets and estate plan, this can be a relatively fast process, or it can take several months. As a lawyer with nearly 40 years of experience, I will help you guide the estate through court as efficiently as possible in order to preserve as much of it as possible for you and your family to enjoy.
Taking On Creditors
One potential complication in executing a will and asset distribution is the emergence of creditors. Banks, credit card companies and other lenders may claim that they are entitled to a portion of the estate. I will investigate these claims for accuracy so that the estate is not unfairly drained of assets. If necessary, I will go to court to contest a creditor claim.
I realize that the death of a spouse or parent is always hard. I will treat your case with sensitivity and understanding. My job is to make the job of estate administrator easier for you.
