Providing Support after a Loved One's Death

An estate is all of the assets, property, and liabilities of a person who has passed away. After your loved one has passed away, there's a burden of uncertainty that can be overwhelming to your family. Since many estates require complicated procedures, court filings and tax returns, dealing with all of these requirements can be hard to navigate on your own.

At Marks Elder Law, our Pittsburgh estate administration lawyers can act on your behalf to administer or help administer the estate. With 40 years of experience, we have significant knowledge of estate law and can properly handle your loved one's affairs.

To discuss your needs with a caring member of our legal team, call us at (412) 500-9488.

Making the Estate Administration Process Easier

After a person passes away, there are often many different aspects of their affairs to conclude. If they had a will, trust and/or estate plan in place to indicate who should be in charge and how their affairs should be handled, this makes the estate administration process easier.

An Executor is a person who was named in a Will to be in charge of an estate. If no executor is named or if an executor cannot serve, another person can be appointed, usually known as the administrator. Should you choose our firm to help you administer the estate of your loved one, we will work with the executor, administrator or other representatives of your estate

Our firm can help with the following aspects of the process:

  • Probate a will
  • Secure the appointment of the executor or administrator
  • Notify creditors/beneficiaries
  • Gather and inventory assets
  • Sell what needs to be sold
  • Pay expenses and debts
  • Prepare and file tax returns
  • Account for estate transactions
  • Distribute assets to recipients as required

Dedicated Support for the Estate Administration Process

The entire estate administration process can take a significant amount of time—sometimes more than a year—depending on how large and complicated the estate is. If there are any issues that require more time to resolve, such as real estate to sell or a will contest, it can often take longer. At Marks Elder Law, we understand what you are going through. We know that estate administration is time-consuming and confusing. Choosing an empathetic, skilled Pittsburgh probate and estate administration attorney can make a difference in the outcome.
