Are You The Executor Of Someone’s Estate? Get Experienced Legal Guidance.
Being the executor of someone’s estate is a big honor – but it is also a big responsibility. Fortunately, it is not one that you have to manage entirely on your own.
At Kreisher Marshall & Associates, LLC, our relationship with the Bloomsburg community goes back more than 140 years, and we proudly represent our clients with all their Pennsylvania estate law needs. We help executors cope with the challenges of probate and their fiduciary responsibilities and ensure that estates are handled in accordance with the law.
Why Does The Executor Of An Estate Need An Attorney?
Because of the fiduciary responsibility that goes along with being an executor, you could be liable for any mistakes that cost the estate or its beneficiaries. A lawyer’s guidance is essential for:
- Understanding the will
- Handling any challenges to the will
- Navigating probate laws
- Avoiding errors and delays
- Locating beneficiaries and heirs
- Handling disputes with beneficiaries
- Complying with tax regulations
- Determining asset valuation
- Distributing assets properly
In short, an attorney’s representation throughout the probate process protects the executor from personal liability by ensuring they act within the bounds of their authority and the law. This can be particularly important when you are handling an estate that has complicated assets or significant value, or when there are disputes about the validity of a will or its provisions.
