When a person is named in a Will to serve as a personal representative or executor, or when a loved one dies with no Will, the personal representative may retain a probate lawyer to assist in the estate administration.
In probate and estate administration, Backes & Backes relies on a team of experienced probate lawyers, paralegals, and outside fiduciary accountants. The firm's probate attorneys work with executors and administrators to facilitate smooth, speedy, and responsible administration.
Probate and estate administration is often far more complex than an executor or administrator may realize. In addition to the risk of failing to meet the wishes of the deceased, the executor or administrator may risk personal liability if their legal responsibilities and fiduciary duties are not performed properly. An experienced probate attorney will reduce the burden of the administration and will insure that all of the legal duties of the executor or administrator are met.
