PROBATE ADMINISTRATION. The court supervised process for identifying and gathering the assets of a deceased person, paying the their debts, and distributing the their assets to their beneficiaries. There are two types of probate administration under Florida law: formal administration and summary administration. We assist families in the orderly administration of estates.
TRUST ADMINISTRATION. While a Trust does not go through probate, it must still be administered. Trust administration is the distribution of assets by Trustee held in trust following the death of the Settlor with the assistance of an attorney.
