Estate Administration

The death of a loved one is difficult, whether the death occurs as a result of a personal injury, medical malpractice, or natural causes. Those left behind are upset, but also stressed about what happens next. Did the loved one leave a will? Are there any assets? Are creditors going to be at my doorstep?

At Zwiebel and Fairbanks, LLP, we are prepared to help those in this situation, whether the loved one’s loss is the result of personal injury, medical malpractice or natural causes. We will work to have a representative appointed to represent the deceased’s estate either as executor (where there is a will) or administrator (where there is no will). We will locate the potential beneficiaries, gather the deceased’s assets and liabilities, deal with the creditors, and distribute the estate’s assets in accordance with the will or the laws of intestacy (applicable to situations where there is no will). We will assist in transferring assets which pass by operation of law.

If you, a friend or family member must handle an estate, please call us in the Kingston area at 845-338-0510 or toll free at 877-ABCDLAW (222-3529). You may also contact us via email.

We are the right lawyers for helping those who must handle the estate of a loved one.
