Probate Administration

At Coen Wexler and Wentz, our professionals have over 70 years experience in handling all aspects of the administration of a decedent's estate. Our attorneys work with the Executor on how best to satisfy the decedent's wishes as expressed in the Last Will and Testament or Trusts.

There are numerous pitfalls and problems that are not readily apparent to estate Executors who are untrained in Probate Administration. We can help you so that the process runs more smoothly. This includes notifying and satisfying decedent's creditors; implementing procedures to limit the possibility of a will contest or other estate litigation; preserving and protecting the assets; evaluating issues concerning exempt property; family allowance and elective share benefits; preparation of the tax returns related to the estate; distributing assets to the beneficiaries; obtaining receipts and releases; and preparing the final accounting for the Executor.

Our attorneys are also experienced in other Probate matters such as Trusts, Trust Administration and Guardianships.
