Probate Estate Administration
After a death in the family, clients in and near Westchester County, New York, often turn with confidence to the law offices of Nobile, Magarian & DiSalvo, LLP. To schedule a consultation regarding probate court, estate administration, or strategies to avoid the probate process, contact us.
Our attorneys are equally well prepared to assist clients through Surrogate’s Court processes whether there is a will or not. In the event of an intestate (no will) estate, we petition the court to appoint an administrator. Statutory law states that a spouse shall receive the first $50,000 and half of the remaining estate when there is no will and there are children; children receive the other half of the remainder.
We are knowledgeable and caring probate/administration lawyers. We are committed to helping our clients maximize the amount that can be gathered into the estate, and minimize the amount that will go to taxes. Our staff is thorough and meticulous, ensuring that no details are overlooked before an estate is closed.
We are careful to follow every lead and pursue every means available to maximize assets that remain in a family.
Often, our lawyers’ advocacy on behalf of survivors goes above and beyond the technical procedures of court.
One deceased person had left a note in her records that led us to substantial life insurance policies that the family had not known about.
Another decedent had large unpaid medical bills which we persuaded healthcare providers to cut in half — thus preserving greater assets for the family through our business law finesse, not just by strict application of probate and administration laws.
