Lebanon Probate Lawyers
Smooth, efficient, and highly knowledgeable estate administration service has been a hallmark of our practice since 1940. To learn how our experience with all aspects of probate can help ensure the prompt administration of an estate of any complexity, contact an estate administration attorney at Reilly, Wolfson, Sheffey, Schrum and Lundberg, LLP, in Lebanon.
We represent executors, administrators, and personal representatives both locally and from out of state in probate matters involving the administration of decedent's estates. The tasks common to most estates include proving the authenticity of the will, assembling and making an inventory of the estate's assets, evaluating and resolving claims against the estate, preparing and filing state and federal estate tax returns, liquidating property, preparing the accounting, and distributing assets to heirs and legatees.
Our attorneys are also more than equal to the challenges that sometimes complicate probate proceedings. These can involve the administration of intestate estates where statutory heirs are hard to find, defective transfers of assets into trust prior to the trustor's death, missing wills or trust instruments, promises to make bequests that are not documented in the terms of the last will and testament, or disputes between family members.
For out of state executors and administrators, we can usually represent your interests effectively without the need for you to return to Pennsylvania while keeping you closely advised about the progress of our work. Our law firm can also represent either the estate or an heir in will contests, challenges to the testamentary capacity of the decedent, or other probate litigation.
