If you have been named executor, administrator or personal representative of a loved one’s estate, or if you believe you have an interest as an heir to an estate, you want an experienced Probate & Trust Administration Attorney to help you settle the estate. Without knowledgeable counsel, the probate process can be complex, time-consuming and costly. The same concerns apply if you have the responsibility to administer a private trust. You want to make certain that you adhere to the trust’s provisions and don’t perform or fail to act in ways that could be a violation of your fiduciary duty.
When you are administering an estate or trust, you want a lawyer who is familiar with the process and has successfully helped others in similar situations.
At the law offices of Hart, Mieras & Morris, we have been protecting the rights of people in and around Burbank for nearly 60 years, opening our practice in 1962. We understand all the different concerns that can arise when you are working to fulfill the obligations of the probate process.
