Probate Attorney: Saugerties, Ulster County/Catskills
When a family member has passed away, assets must be distributed from his or her estate. Each situation is different. Generally, the estate can be either what lawyers call "testate," meaning with a will, or it can be "intestate," meaning without a will.
If the person has a will, assets are distributed according to that will by an executor. If the person does not have a will, assets are distributed according to New York state law by an administrator.
The process can be complex, so it is best to have guidance from an experienced attorney. At Esslie & Frenia, P.C., we use years of experience to guide clients through the probate process. Located in Cairo, New York, we are dedicated to helping matters proceed as smoothly as possible.
We have the capacity to handle all necessary matters throughout the probate process. We can file a petition with the proper court to appoint an executor or administrator, help distribute assets, file all waivers and receipts and do accountings. If an estate is complex and substantial, we can also work with other professionals, as needed to appropriately manage assets.
