The death of a loved one is perhaps the most challenging issue a person will ever face. For a variety of legal reasons, the deceased person’s estate often must be administered through the Probate Court. Whether or not your loved one prepared a Last Will and Testament, Peter and his probate team will handle the complicated process of opening a probate, consolidating assets, accessing bank accounts, obtaining insurance and retirement benefits, and then distributing the assets to the heirs or beneficiaries. If the deceased left real estate behind, we can transfer it to other family members, or arrange for its sale and division of the proceeds.
