SUCCESSIONS AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
The attorneys of Duval, Funderburk, Sundbery, Richard and Watkins provide an array of legal services related to successions and estate administration to ease the burden on our clients and ensure that assets are protected and managed as intended.
A succession is the legal process by which a person’s debts are paid and assets are distributed upon death to his or her proper successors. The firm’s attorneys are experienced working with the most complex estate and succession planning matters, as well as basic wills and trusts.
Estate administration includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased’s assets. Individual state laws direct the probate court how to distribute the deceased’s estate, and state laws and procedures vary greatly. Our attorneys’ expertise in this practice of law helps to ensure that the deceased’s assets are distributed correctly.
“Our firm handles everything from simple wills and trusts to the most complex estate planning and administration situations for families and businesses.” – Sid Sundbery
