Raleigh Fiduciary Representation Lawyer
A fiduciary is the person who has been named in a will to settle an estate. If no fiduciary has been identified, or there is no will, the probate court will appoint a fiduciary to manage and administer an estate.
Our Raleigh fiduciary representation lawyers have significant experience serving as legal counsel to fiduciaries including executors, administrators and trustees. We provide advice to them during trust and estate administration.
We are sensitive to the family and beneficiary dynamics that often complicate the fiduciaries duties in trust and estate administration.
In addition to the complicated legal responsibilities, we assist fiduciaries with other duties:
- Identify and gather assets
- Notify heirs and beneficiaries of the estate
- Handle claims / pay outstanding debts
- Manage estate contests and claims
- Prepare estate tax returns and filings
- Distribute assets according to the will
Efficient Administration of Trusts and Estates
Fiduciary duties include providing estate beneficiaries with complete, accurate and timely information. This creates the potential for serious legal exposure.
McNeil Law Firm provides representation and guidance to individuals who do want to assume the responsibility or risk of fiduciary duty.
