Losing a loved one is difficult enough without the additional stress of making important financial decisions that can dramatically impact your family for years to come. If you have been asked to oversee the administration of an estate, you should know that it is an honor, because that means your loved one thought highly of you and your character. But you should also know what is involved before agreeing to do so.

It is important to note that if the estate and/or trust assets are improperly accounted for, you, as executor and/or trustee, can be held personally liable. We can help you avoid the types of mistakes that can leave you subject to personal financial liability.
