Estate Administration

Let us handle it.

Estate Administration

Estate administration, which is sometimes referred to as “probate” (which is one aspect of estate administration), is the process by which an individual called an executor distributes the property of a deceased individual while servicing any remaining debts and taking care of related administrative tasks related to closing up the deceased individual’s affairs. At The Law Office of Elizabeth McMaster, PLC, our legal team works with executors (also called “administrators” or “personal representatives”) to take all necessary actions in executing their duties with respect to the estate, including making necessary filings and taking other actions with the appropriate probate court.

In addition to assisting current fiduciaries in fulfilling their obligations, we can also act as an executor/administrator for any estate in Virginia to make sure property is properly distributed and all business and legal affairs are addressed.


Services Include

The administration of an estate should be a time when the decedent’s legacy is honored while proper beneficiaries are able to receive the property the decedent wished them to have without delay or controversy. All too often, however, problems arise in the probate process leading to mistake, delay, drama, unnecessary expense, and even fraud. When you work with the experienced, compassionate, and knowledgeable legal team at The Law Office of Elizabeth McMaster, PLC, we will draw on our vast experience in estate administration to minimize stress, delay, and confusion and ensure that the estate is properly administered as quickly and economically as possible.
