San Antonio Estate Administration Lawyer
Being named an executor is a significant responsibility. Executors and trustees are held to the highest legal standard, that of fiduciary duty. There are numerous laws and regulations that determine how you handle the estate through the probate process. There are also significant complications in probate that, if handled improperly, could expose you to breach of fiduciary duty claims from potential beneficiaries or other interested parties.
At Oliva, Saks, Garcia & Curiel, PLLC, we can walk you through the probate process and help you fulfill your duties as executor, overseeing the essential duties that include:
- Satisfying creditors
- Finding beneficiaries
- Paying beneficiaries
- Making accountings
We also represent beneficiaries in the probate process. As a potential beneficiary, it is important that the will and other estate planning instruments are in order, and to make sure the executor is performing his or her duties appropriately.
When needed, we handle probate litigation and will contests. In most cases, we can resolve these conflicts through settlement negotiations, but we have decades of litigation behind us to protect your interests in court if needed.
