Probate follows what is typically a painful emotional loss. Most executors have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the process. Attorney Jonathan D. Parnell has experience in probate law and knows how to ease the stress of probate by guiding executors and beneficiaries.

We can guide you through the complex probate process, including:

  • Filing the will with the Court
  • Developing strategy for probating the estate in a fair and timely manner
  • Locating, valuing, and transferring assets to the estate
  • Managing and preserving the estate
  • Paying estate taxes
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Liquidating assets and distributing the estate
  • Hiring experts, when appropriate

We assist executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisers, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist with executor duties. We can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.
