Probate and Estate Administration

After a family member passes away, the heirs are tasked with the job of marshaling the assets and distributing them in accordance with the decedent’s wishes.  Whether there is a will, a trust or no estate plan at all, most of the time the services of an attorney are required to access and correctly disburse the inheritance.  At GPG, LLC we assist our clients with the following estate administration aspects:

  • Determining whether a probate proceeding is required.
  • “Going through” the probate process to get a personal representative appointed.
  • Assisting families in interpreting the dispositions outlined in wills and trusts.
  • Advising on whether an estate tax return must be filed.
