I Can Take On The Burden Of Probate For You

After the death of a loved one, you may have more issues to handle in addition to your grief. If you have been named an administrator or executor, you also have a complex legal process to navigate. It is important to seek legal advice as you could be personally responsible for any mistakes.

At Russell G. Marlowe, PA, I represent people who have been named the executor or personal administrator of a Florida estate. This is often an adult child who is representing the estate of a parent who died while owning property in Florida. I also represent beneficiaries who want me to supervise a probate proceeding to make sure it is done properly and that their interests are protected. Find out how I can assist you today.

Do You Live In Another State? I Can Help.

I represent Florida residents as well as people from other states or countries who have a loved one who owned property in Florida at the time of their death. Unless the property was held in trust, it needs to go through the probate process. In this situation, I can handle probate without the need for you to travel to Florida.

What Happens During Probate?

Probate is the process for administering a person’s estate after their death. It includes many steps such as:

  • Identification and gathering of the assets
  • Paying off any debts
  • Getting the assets to beneficiaries
  • Closing the estate

Depending on the size and complexity of the estate, this can be a lengthy, complicated process. It is usually best to work with a lawyer to ensure that each step goes smoothly. Attorney’s fees are paid by the estate, so you do not have to worry about being personally responsible for them.
