Probate Administration

Probate is a court-monitored process of proving the validity of a will, transferring property, and settling the affairs of the deceased’s estate. If there is no will, a similar process known as Administration is used to settle the deceased’s affairs.

Probate is the process of passing the assets of a deceased person to his or heirs, after the payment of creditors. In addition to the grief that is caused by the loss of a loved one, the personal representative of an estate is required to quickly learn the legal procedures necessary to ensure a smooth estate administration. At the law firm of Diana Gary we are here to provide the help and assistance necessary to ensure a successful probate administration.

We manage dozens of probate cases each year, and have the experience necessary to guide personal representatives through the probate process.

We handle estates of all sizes and complexities, from simple estates valued at less than $30,000 all the way up to taxable estates valued in the millions. We also have considerable experience handling estates with real estate, business interests, and assets disbursed in more than one state.

If you are named as the personal representative in a will and require assistance with the probate process, please feel free to call, I will be more then willing to assist in any way that I can. If you are an heir and the person named in the will as the personal representative is deceased or is unable or unwilling to fulfill their duties as the personal representative, you may be eligible to serve as the personal representative.
