Estate Administration and Probate Litigation

Estate Administration is the formal process of filing with the local probate court when a loved one dies with or without a Will in Connecticut. The appointed Executor/Executrix or Fiduciary, is in charge of marshalling estate assets, paying liabilities, and distributing the proceeds of the Estate which can be a confusing process. We are here to help you through this sensitive process.
