Efficient And Effective Management Of Probate And Trust Concerns

Personal representatives or executors handle a wide range of tasks, including:

  • Initiating the probate process
  • Taking an inventory of the deceased’s assets
  • Identifying beneficiaries
  • Resolving debts and taxes of the estate
  • Distribution of assets
  • Submittal of accounting to the state of Florida

The responsibilities of a trustee vary slightly. While trust assets can bypass the probate process, management of a trust can be ongoing – particularly if disbursements of funds occurs over time.

Our team at is here to eliminate any hurdles in your way and help you wind down your loved one’s estate quickly and cost-effectively.
