An Attorney Can Help Keep Costs Down
Investopedia estimates probate could cost around three percent to seven percent of the value of the estate. An experienced attorney can help you to ensure that the probate process goes as smoothly as possible so you can keep costs to a minimum. This is important so heirs or beneficiaries can inherit a larger estate with less money lost to court costs and other fees and expenditures.
Probate Attorneys can Help Respond to Problems
There is potential for problems to arise during the probate process. For example, there could be missing assets that need to be tracked down or the value of assets could end up being in dispute. Someone also could decide to contest a will. Whenever a problem arises, an experienced attorney with probate experience can assist you in solving it. Whether this means finding experts like forensic accountants or fighting to uphold a last will and testament as valid, Mark S. Eghrari & Associates, PLLC can provide the assistance that you require.
Probate Attorneys can Help to Prevent Losses to an Inheritance
The executor of an estate is typically put in charge of managing probate assets during the probate process. An attorney can provide advice to an executor on his obligations and can offer assistance with the management of assets. An experienced attorney can also help an executor of an estate to comply with obligations related to taxes in order to make sure that there are no penalties or consequences for failure to comply with IRS or state tax rules.
Mark S. Eghrari & Associates, PLLC not only assists the executor of an estate with keeping assets safe but we can also provide representation to heirs or beneficiaries who stand to inherit. Since it is their money and property at risk, it’s very important for people who stand to inherit to monitor the probate process and ensure that nothing is happening to put assets at risk. For example, probate attorneys could help heirs or beneficiaries to identify a breach of fiduciary duty that the executor of an estate may commit that could jeopardize the value of an inheritance. An experienced attorney can help heirs or beneficiaries to take action if such a breach occurs to hold the executor liable for losses.
