Coltrane Grubbs Orenstein has a comprehensive estate administration and probate practice.
When a family member or friend passes, one of the most difficult parts of the grieving process can be trying to resolve the legal issues that might have been left behind. Our firm works hard to represent estates and personal representatives throughout the process—we try to act as a guide and counsellor throughout the process, to make sure the impact on your life is as minimal as possible.
Coltrane Grubbs Orenstein assists families and individuals in the administration of estates and in the establishment and maintenance of trusts and guardianships upon the death of a family member or friend. We also counsel executors, administrators, trustees, and guardians, both corporate and individual, in fulfilling their fiduciary duties.
Our firm excels with complex probate problems. Do you have a trust administration issue paired with your estate administration? Do you have a codicil or memorandum that was handwritten or difficult to interpret? Did your deceased have a business interest that needs to be resolved? Do you have rental properties across several counties? Are you trying to sell a piece of real property that has an unclear title history? We are well-versed on administration of complex estates.
Our firm also helps clients with simple estate administration. Before you schedule an appointment with the Clerk of Court, come talk to our attorneys about the easiest way to resolve your spouse or parent’s estate. Where possible, we use Spouse’s Year Allowance or Small Collection Affidavits to bring quick resolution to our small estates.
