As difficult as it can be to cope with the loss of a loved one, the complicated legal processes of administering the Estate can make the burden even greater. At The Siegel Law Group, P.A., we offer experienced, compassionate assistance with Probate and Trust Administration in Boca Raton, both to help carry out your loved one’s wishes and to guard the interests of those left behind.
Legal Guidance Through the Probate Process
During Probate, courts identify and verify a deceased individual’s assets. If the decedent had a Will, the property is distributed per that Will upon validation by a judge. Without a valid Will, the judge must determine how to distribute the property under relevant Florida law. This process can be long, arduous and costly.
Additionally, if you have been appointed as the Personal Representative to administer the Estate, you could be personally liable for failure to do so properly. For nearly 20 years, South Florida Probate Attorney Barry D. Siegel has provided skilled representation and guidance for families and Personal Representatives who are navigating the complex Probate process.
Many people place assets into a Trust as a way to bypass Probate and avoid costly estate taxes. Although a Trust can be administered privately outside the courtroom, the Trustee must still accurately distribute the funds, according to the terms of the Trust. Our Attorneys can work closely with the Trustee, providing necessary guidance to ensure the Trust’s terms are correctly fulfilled.
