If your loved one had a living trust, that trust must be administered after their death in a way it hadn’t been during their lifetime.  To fulfill your responsibilities to the decedent and to the beneficiaries will require that matters be handled professionally and promptly.  Unlike probate, trust administration is billed at an hourly rate and is negotiable.

You don’t have to go through probate, or administer a trust, alone; we can provide you the professional assistance you need to do what you need to do with a minimum of stress.  Call us and come to our office for a free consultation, or we’ll come to your home to discuss the process.
