Skilled Probate And Trust Administration
Administering Wills And Trusts
Serving as a trustee or estate administrator is not a simple task. In fact, it is a challenging responsibility that requires care and a great deal of effort. Trustees and estate administrators are held to a standard of fiduciary duty. This is the highest standard under the law, requiring an agent to always act in the best interests of the principal. Breach of this fiduciary duty — even an unintentional breach — can result in serious legal problems.
At Weinstein & Randisi, our Rochester estate administration attorneys represent trustees and estate administrators. With a strong commitment to providing personalized legal representation, we can help you avoid legal problems and fulfill your fiduciary duties.
When someone dies, the estate goes through the probate process. Estate administrators and will executors are responsible for making sure the details of the estate proceed appropriately. This can include:
- Paying the estate’s debts
- Determining heirs
- Distributing the estate’s assets
With more than 50 years of legal experience, our lawyers know the limits of your responsibilities and rights as an estate administrator. We have the resources to find the answers you need efficiently and accurately. We can walk you through every step of the process, helping you avoid conflict and other legal problems in probate. After a loved one has died, our legal services can solve many problems, giving you the freedom you need to grieve your losses and move on.
We represent trustees in the trust administration process. In many ways, the process is similar to the probate/estate administration process, with similar responsibilities, duties and rights afforded the agent.
