Probate and Administration of Estates

When a loved one passes, dealing with the estate can be burdensome for family members. For the executor, the responsibilities are both legal and personal. The executor has a duty in law to act ethically and fulfil the wishes of the deceased person.

At Goluboff & Mazzei, our West Vancouver lawyers handle probate efficiently. It can normally be achieved within a reasonable time frame, and perhaps more quickly than if the executor attempted to do it independently.

Once probate is granted, we assist the executor with the full scope of his or her duties, affording the executor a measure of legal protection and peace of mind that the deceased's intentions are met.

Benefits Of Legal Counsel For Estate Administration

The main benefit of having legal guidance when you act as estate executor is knowing that you are meeting your legal obligations. As experienced lawyers, we can help you to organize the assets of the deceased person, locate beneficiaries, file tax returns, liquidate assets, and distribute the estate assets and other duties. While this may seem manageable for you to do on your own, we can help remove some of the burden while you are grieving.

Our lawyers have been practising estates law in B.C. for more than 35 years. When it comes to precise and detail-oriented legal work such as estates administration, it is invaluable to have the guidance of a seasoned lawyer. We know what to expect, what challenges you may encounter and how best to meet your legal responsibilities.
