Estate Administration


Plunkett Cooney advises personal representatives and trustees with respect to the administration of estates and trusts and guides them in all aspects of fulfilling their fiduciary responsibilities that arise in connection with the probate and estate administration process.

The firm’s representation in these matters includes guidance in filing the necessary legal documentation to initiate and then later conclude the probate process, notifying creditors and handling the payment of the decedent's debts, distributing the assets of the estate in accordance with the decedent's wishes, preparing and filing the decedent's estate tax return, and settling estate tax matters.

When family conflicts or disputes with third parties arise, our attorneys represent fiduciaries and beneficiaries in the negotiation and/or litigation of those matters.
