Estate, Probate, and Trust Administration
Logically following estate planning is estate, probate, and trust administration -- putting the plan into operation. Our firm represents fiduciaries and beneficiaries in all Minnesota probate courts, preparing all documents and filings required under Minnesota laws and procedures, and preparing income tax returns for the estate, as well as any required estate tax returns. Trust administration does not usually require court pleadings or filings, but many of the same administration, distribution, or tax issues are present and require attention. In this area, we counsel fiduciaries regarding the rights and interests of beneficiaries, and recommend steps or actions to help the fiduciary operate the trust in compliance with the appropriate fiduciary laws and avoid personal liability for their actions, or inaction. We also assist with guardianships and conservatorships. We take special care during these difficult times to represent families with caring and compassionate counsel, guidance and direction. Our attorneys are well aware of the stress that legal proceedings often times add to a difficult situation and strive to complete the formal process as quickly as possible while maintaining an eye towards your expressed goals. Experience enables us to counsel surviving spouses and children during this transition and help them make sound legal decisions for their future.
