Probate is a court-supervised process for distributing the individually owned assets of a deceased person. Assets are distributed to beneficiaries following the instructions written in the person’s will (or California’s intestacy statutes if the person died without a will). Our law firm offers legal services to executors following a death. The executor is responsible for ensuring that the assets of the estate are distributed properly and in a timely manner.
An overview of the valuable guidance we provide includes:
- Review of the executed will
- Gathering of all assets of the estate
- Explanation of executor’s responsibilities
- Estate tax analysis
- Collection of death benefits
- Creation of sub-trusts
