Trusts & Estates

If you have been selected as an executor in a will or have been appointed as an administrator by the Surrogate's Court, we can help you administer the estate according to the law.

There are many legal procedures involved in the administration and distribution of the assets of an estate. The deceased's preference for an executor of his/her estate or a trustee of a trust is usually indicated in a will. Prior to a beneficiary being officially appointed, papers must be filed in the Surrogate's Court. Executors, administrators and trustees are charged with the responsibility of learning the complex legal procedures involved.
