Estate Administration & Estate Planning Attorneys

When a family member passes away, it can be overwhelming to handle their estate while you’re grieving. You might wonder if they left a will or a trust, how to inform the heirs, how to pay off the debts of the estate, and what to do about estate taxes. These are all important questions that a qualified attorney can answer for you.

Administering The Estate After The Death Of A Loved One

After the death of a loved one, various financial and legal requirements need to be fulfilled to properly handle the estate. Sometimes, the probate court will be involved in the process. When you choose to work with Ganim Legal, P.C., we will take care of all these different tasks, so you don’t have to worry about them.

We provide comprehensive estate administration services that cover all the necessary aspects. Our services include:

  • Validating wills
  • Appraising property
  • Notifying beneficiaries
  • Paying creditors
  • Paying estate taxes
  • Advising estate administrators
  • Advising trustees and fiduciaries
  • Distributing non-probate assets
  • Representation in probate court

If there’s a disagreement or conflict related to a will, trust, or estate, we are here to represent you in probate litigation. Our team is led by Attorney Paul Ganim. He has been an elected Probate Judge in Bridgeport for over 15 years. Please note that due to his judicial role, Attorney Paul Ganim cannot represent clients with matters in the Bridgeport Probate Court. However, we can refer you to another law firm that can assist you.
