Probate and Trust Administration
Hartmann & Nihem, PLLC has experience helping executors administer a will, called the probate process. We guide our clients through each step of the probate process. Our firm’s approach empowers the executor by letting them know what to expect and when each step in the probate process will be completed. This also helps avoid family conflicts. As the personal representatives named in a will, our attorneys can effectively work to ensure the property of your loved one’s estate is properly distributed. As part of duties as personal representative, we:
- Gather estate assets
- Provide notice for all interested parties
- Pay debts, including taxes
- Distribute the remaining assets according to the direction of a will
Without proper administration, your loved ones could face court hearings and other costly legal matters before your estate can be distributed.
