Our attorney can represent executors involved in disputes concerning a loved one’s estate and provide them with estate administration services and support. If you are named as the executor in someone’s will, you a fiduciary who is tasked with carrying out several important duties.

Some of these duties include the following:

  • Paying valid claims submitted by creditors
  • Preparing a final tax return and paying the resulting tax bill
