The process outlined describes the basic steps in administering an estate and is not all inclusive. The attorneys at Sweeney, Reich & Bolz LLP are prepared to handle any additional issues that arise and have experience administering estates of all sizes and complexities. We understand that there are circumstances where a deceased loved one did not prepare a will or failed to name a personal representative.
Our attorneys will help you navigate the requirements of the laws of New York and the Surrogate’s Court rules. If there is little or no personal information about a person who died intestate (without a will), our attorneys, paralegals and investigators will review the documents and determine the client’s best course of action. It is important to consult an experienced attorney in all circumstances related to probate or administration of an estate so that a thorough investigation may be conducted to determine the most effective legal strategy.
Our firm’s staff includes paralegals with experience in handling simple and complex estates. With this valuable experience, and a team of attorneys and staff focused on different areas of the law, Sweeney, Reich & Bolz LLP has the resources to handle both routine and complex estates that other firms decline.
