Probate Law Explained
If you have been named in a will as the executor of an estate, or you have been chosen as the administrator, you are responsible for managing the probate process. This usually involves validating the will, making an inventory of all assets, settling outstanding debts, paying taxes, and distributing remaining assets on behalf of the decedent. As a probate lawyer, Laura Widdis helps clients prepare and file all the paperwork required by the probate court. She also helps beneficiaries resolve disputes over assets.
