Successions Under Administration
If you have been appointed as the executor or administrator of an estate, we will work closely with you to comply with the legal requirements to place the heirs and legatees in possession of their inheritance.
We will also help you put together an accounting of the assets of the estate, ensure the payment of all final debts and taxes, and oversee the orderly distribution of assets as directed in the will. This can include the sale of assets, such as real estate.
We also handle disputes that arise during the succession under administration process, including will contests, issues of forced heirship, disputes with creditors and ongoing business matters. We will represent executors, administrators or heirs in litigation involving succession controversies.
