What We Can Do for You

If you are concerned about administering an estate, chances are you are an executor, administrator, or trustee to that estate. In any of these positions, you hold an important role in making sure that various actions are taken place. Not only is your role important, however, but it carries with it an incredible amount of liability – making a mistake at any time can make you vulnerable to a lawsuit.

Our estate administration attorneys in Salisbury can provide the legal oversight you need during this process to ensure your liability is protected.

We can help you assist with various important tasks, such as:

  • Identifying and gathering all assets and property belonging to an estate

  • Pay off any debts owed by the deceased with estate funds
  • Prepare a final tax return
  • Pay a final tax bill with estate funds
  • Distribute remaining assets and property to beneficiaries, according to the deceased’s wishes
