Estate Administration

Knowledgeable Estate Administration Attorneys in Franklin, Brentwood & Columbia

Cost-effective, speedy and reliable resolution of your loved one’s estate

If your loved one dies without a will, the entire estate goes into probate. This means that all assets are frozen until the court has made a determination regarding the validity of any claims against the estate, including claims made by heirs. Although the court will eventually disperse the property according to Tennessee’s laws of inheritance, the heirs won’t receive anything until a representative of the estate, the administrator, settles accounts. An administrator can be one of the heirs, but since guiding an estate through probate takes detailed knowledge of probate court procedure, heirs to an estate generally retain an attorney to oversee these matters. For more than 20 years, attorneys at the Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates have provided meticulous, reliable estate administration services in Brentwood, Franklin and Columbia and throughout middle Tennessee.

Estate administration lawyers save you time and expense

Heirs may initially hesitate to retain a lawyer, thinking they can manage the administration process themselves. Then they find out how much time it takes to perform the duties while learning through trial and error. Administrator duties start to consume their lives, and they still don’t seem to be making any headway. Since the court operates during business hours, they have to take off work for appearances. Meanwhile, the estate loses value drop by drop because of delays. After a few months, the would-be administrator realizes that hiring a skilled attorney would have saved money, time and frustration
