Probate and Trust Administration and Litigation

When a loved one dies, assets are distributed to their beneficiaries through the estate administration process. Assets in a trust pass outside the court. Assets in a will require court probate. At the Law Offices of Dennis J. Polen, we provide comprehensive legal guidance to estate administrators, heirs, and creditors during the administration process. Our offices also litigate claims against the estate and will contests. We work closely with our clients to identify the best strategies to hasten the administration process and ensure that all administration matters proceed smoothly.
