 Skillful Estate Planning can Protect You and Your Loved Ones

Contemplating illness, injury and death falls low on most people’s list of preferred activities.  However, the importance of having a well-thought-out plan regarding what will occur in the event of one’s death or incapacity cannot be overstated.  Skillful planning can save on estate taxes, avoid costly, stressful litigation and ensure that you and/or your loved ones receive proper care in the event of illness or injury.

Our Wills and Estate Lawyers Assist Executors to Administer Wills and Avoid Liability

Acting as an executor or administrator of a will is a big responsibility.  Among other things, you must:

  • determine whether you are required to apply to the court for an Application for Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee (commonly referred to as probate);
  • ensure that the debts of the estate are paid prior to distributing the assets; and
  • ensure you always act in the best interest of any beneficiaries of the will. 

As an executor, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the myriad tasks you are being asked to undertake and confused by the legal processes involved.  Moreover, it is important to realize that you could be held personally liable for any mistakes you make regarding the use or distribution of estate assets.

The experienced lawyers at Spiteri & Ursulak LLP can help you navigate the complex estate administration process and protect you against liability.

Our Lawyers Provide Skilled Representation in Estate Litigation Matters

Unfortunately, the administration of estates does not always go smoothly and families often find themselves in disputes over the interpretation of a will or over conflicting views of what the deceased wanted.  Family disputes are stressful at the best of times and become particularly difficult when individuals are in mourning and emotions are running high.

We at Spiteri & Ursulak LLP understand how stressful these disputes can be.  We work with our clients to achieve solutions as efficiently and painlessly as possible.  If the matter goes to court, our clients receive skilled representation by one of our experienced litigators.
