Estate Administration

Pennsylvania Estate Administration

After a death in the family, there are many details to attend to, as well as global issues. Estate administration is one of those major issues that every family must confront very soon. The estate planning and estate administration law firm of Quinn, Buseck, Leemhuis, Toohey & Kroto, Inc. in Erie, Pennsylvania, welcomes inquiries from family members from out-of-state as well as families in the locality when the time has come to settle an estate in the area.

Call or e-mail the law offices to schedule a consultation if your family is in need of experienced, reliable estate administration services in Northwest Pennsylvania.

Most people hold at least some assets in ways that make probate necessary. Some handle the transfer of assets entirely through trusts. Even if your deceased family member's assets will change hands through trusts, there may be life insurance proceedings or other assets unaccounted for the trusts. A pour-over will may contain instructions for assets outside the trust. Contact us to schedule a review of any related issues such as estate taxes (inheritance taxes), capital gains tax if a home will be sold or business succession issues.

We make every effort to keep our estate administration services cost-effective and thorough. Our very capable paralegals are likely to assist us as we work to close your loved one's estate efficiently. We will advise and assist family members in appointing a personal representative or providing timely counsel and legal services to a representative (executor) who has already been appointed. We will advise your family of the most effective and timely manner to notify any creditors as the law prescribes.

Entrust the estate administration of your loved one's estate to well-established attorneys who handle Pennsylvania estates regularly. Contact Quinn, Buseck, Leemhuis, Toohey & Kroto, Inc. to schedule a consultation.
