PHILADELPHIA, MONTGOMERY AND BUCKS COUNTIY PROBATE LAWYERS
In our combined forty-five years of service to our Pennsylvania clients, we’ve tried our best to prove that no one takes the subjects of Wills, Estates, and Probate more seriously than the Law Offices of Regina B. Guerin and Annemarie Guerin.
Estate planning and Wills anticipate the end of a life, and the smoothest possible transition for the lives of loved ones left behind. We want to be available to you, as probate lawyers and as compassionate people, to offer valuable input to our clients, for such a difficult time.
At your request, we can see to the proper distribution of a client’s property at his or her death. This takes into account the handling of wills, monitoring of tax considerations, guardianship, insurance, power of attorney, property, and trusts issues.
As attorneys accomplished in dealing with Wills and Estates, we compile and complete all legal documents necessary to get the maximum benefit of the law, in accordance with your wishes. We fulfill these duties with the utmost attention to detail, and as affordably as possible.
WILLS AND PROBATE
In a Probate court proceeding, a Will is “proved” and the Estate of a decedent is administered. The process generally includes collecting a decedent’s assets, dealing with any liabilities, including the payment of taxes, and finally, distributing assets to heirs.
As Probate lawyers we will help you with these proceedings, walk you through the various steps, and look out for your interests at all times, whether the Will is proven valid or contested.
The entity that owns the deceased’s assets, until those assets are distributed, is referred to as an Estate. The Law Offices of Regina B. Guerin and Annemarie Guerin represent clients in both Probate and Estate Administration matters, as well as filing appropriate tax returns.
We can also guide you through non-probate transfers of your loved one’s assets. Individual state laws usually direct the Probate court on how to distribute the deceased’s estate. We’ll be alongside to make sure the job is done right.
State laws and procedures can vary greatly, so it’s important to consult a Probate lawyer with experience and knowledge in this area. When we take your case, we follow through until we’re certain that the assets are distributed correctly.
