Kahn, Dees, Donovan & Kahn attorneys have decades of experience representing individuals and bank trust officers in their role as executor of an estate or as trustee of a trust. There are many decisions that need to be made after death – in collecting, valuing and accounting for a decedent’s assets; paying debts and claims; preparing applicable tax returns; filing necessary documents with the court; and distributing a decedent’s assets. We can assist you in determining whether your loved one’s affairs can be administered without the need to have court-supervised probate proceedings. We also counsel executors and trustees on the variety of tax planning and other important issues to consider during settlement of an estate or administration of a trust.
Our attorneys also assist in the event an estate is contested in court, or in guardianship situations.
