Helping Your Probate Matter Go Smoothly

If your loved one had an estate plan, and executed a last will and testament in New York, upon his or her death, the estate must go through the probate process. At a time like this, it is important that matters involving family members go as smoothly as possible. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we are deeply familiar with the state’s probate laws, and we can guide you through the process. We will help you avoid or resolve any disputes among family members and efficiently bring you through the probate of your loved one’s estate. If your family member did not have a will, trust or estate plan prior to his or her death, we can also assist you with estate administration tasks.
