Boca Raton, Florida, Probate Administration Attorney
Representing People Probating an Estate in Florida
When a loved one passes away, the emotional process of sorting out their estate begins. Probate administration occurs when someone dies with a will that needs to be submitted to probate court for administration. This necessary process settles the debts of the estate, inventories and appraises property, and transfers title to the intended beneficiaries.

Determining the Assets and Liabilities of an Estate
The process associated with determining the true value of an estate, figuring out the value of its assets and debts, can be complicated by a number of different factors. If necessary, our firm utilizes a number of tax experts, accountants, private investigators and forensic accountants to determine the value of an estate's assets and debts, and to prepare financial documents and records in order to settle debts with creditors. We will also protect estates from creditors and others who attempt to make a claim against an estate.
