Representation of Executors & Administrators

Providing Support to Executors and Administrators

After a death, the wishes of the decedent expressed in his or her will or trust are carried out by executors, administrators, or personal representatives. Named by the deceased in a will or trust, the executor has the obligation to implement the terms of the will or trust. The duties can involve selling real estate, distributing assets to heirs and beneficiaries, and paying the debts and taxes of the estate.

At Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP, our lawyers have many years of experience assisting executors and administrators as they carry out their estate administration duties. Since 1935, our law firm has advised individuals serving in these positions about their responsibilities. Our attorneys help them follow the best practices in estate administration with the goal of preventing unnecessary litigation.
