Estate Administration

Estate Management and Administration Services

At Hergott Law, we understand that dealing with the complexities of acting as an executor and going through the probate/administration process with the court system can be overwhelming, particularly in the context of a deep personal loss. Our team is here to provide guidance and support, ensuring that the estate is handled efficiently and according to the law.

Our Services Include:

  1. Probate and Estate Administration: We handle the process of achieving an estate grant, whether that’s with a will (probate) or without (letters of administration).
  2. Executor Support: If you have been named as executor, we can assist you in fulfilling your duties. Our team will provide you with the necessary tools and advice to manage the estate effectively, ensuring compliance with your legal obligations. We will also, if you wish, pursue an order that the estate compensate you for those services.
  3. Will “curing”: If the deceased has written testamentary wishes that were not set out in a valid will, we have experience applying to the court for an order that the document be validated or “cured”.
  4. Referrals for dispute resolution: We have extensive litigation experience, but no longer take on litigated matters. We will refer estate disputes to excellent estate litigation lawyers as may be necessary.
