Probate Administration

Assisting You with Probate Responsibilities
The death of someone close to you is always a difficult experience, and handling your loved one’s estate is probably among the last things you want to deal with during this emotional time.  At Cairns Law Firm, our attorney strives to make the probate process go as smoothly as possible.

Handling Every Stage of Probate Administration
At Cairns Law Firm, we represent personal representatives (formerly known as executors or administrators) both throughout the probate administration process or, if desired, with regard to specific probate tasks, such as the following:

            •            Providing notices to beneficiaries and creditors
            •            Handling creditor claims against the estate
            •            Drafting deeds of distribution for the real property owned by the decedent
            •            Assisting in guardianship and conservatorship for minor children

We also represent beneficiaries, creditors and other interested parties in probate matters, and we help appointed trustees with their trust administration duties. Our focus is on the timely and beneficial resolution of all outstanding issues regarding an estate. The probate process can be frustrating for family members trying to deal with the death of a loved one, especially when complexities or disputes arise. If you have been appointed personal representative of an estate, we can guide you through all aspects of probate administration.
