Raleigh Estate Administration Lawyer
Advising and Assisting Administrators, Executors and Trustees
Estate administration—also known as probate—is the process of settling the legal and financial affairs of someone who has died. While many smaller estates can be administered without the assistance of an attorney, more complex cases require a lawyer’s involvement.
At Brady Morton & Cobin, PLLC, we provide skilled advice and assistance to administrators, executors, trustees and other parties in probate and related matters. Raleigh estate administration attorneys Dan Brady and Andrew Cobin have a combined 35+ years’ experience in practicing probate law in North Carolina since 1982.
Addressing Complex Estate and Trust Issues Promptly and Effectively
While North Carolina has made significant efforts to streamline the probate process, the courts still have an interest in making sure complex issues are handled appropriately and everyone is treated fairly. Common examples of issues that can complicate estate administration include:
- Claims by creditors against assets of the estate
- Provisions in the will that are impossible to implement
- The necessity to complete an estate tax return
- Beneficiaries who owe money to the estate
- Trust beneficiaries who wish to modify the trust
Mr. Brady and Mr. Cobin have the experience to effectively and expeditiously handle any issues that may arise during probate.
If you are administering an estate and need help remembering deadlines, accessing court forms and more, use the tools on our Estate Planning and Administration resource website.
