Fiduciary Services

You Take Care of Your Family. We'll Handle the Details.

After a death in the family, one of the most difficult issues surviving family members have to deal with is probate and estate tax concerns. At Lyons & Supple, we know how difficult it is to try to handle the emotions of grieving over a beloved spouse or family member, while dealing with the details of wills and the probate process. We offer a full range of fiduciary services that let you take care of your family while we handle the legal details.

Some typical estate planning and probate concerns we can handle for you:

  • Probate representation: We will see that the terms of the will are carried out in accordance with the deceased's final wishes, or help family members understand their rights if no will exists.
  • Final accounting and reporting of estate assets: We handle all details relating to final accounting of estate assets for probate court.
  • Executor assistance: If you have been named as the executor of a will, you face legal obligations and challenges. We will advise you of your rights and responsibilities to help you avoid the common mistakes that often lead to contested will litigation. We can also help you obtain power of attorney to handle any legal details not anticipated by the will.
  • Estate administration: We will work with creditors and other interested parties to finalize the estate's financial and contractual obligations.
  • Life insurance: We will handle all details relating to life insurance and other policy coverage.
  • Trust administration: We can establish a trust to distribute financial assets in accordance with the estate holder's final wishes and administer the trust on behalf of the surviving spouse or family members.
