As a general practice law firm our lawyers handle a broad range of civil matters.
Probate and Estate Administration
When a person dies there are tasks and responsibilities that must be addressed. These often includes the closing of accounts, the payment of any remaining debts, and the distribution of property to heirs as directed by the decedent’s will. This area of the law is called probate and estate administration. If someone dies without having a will, the process is similar however the person’s assets are distributed as required under New York State law. At Bonney Law Firm we understand how sensitive estate administration can be and we are here to help our clients through this process.
This is a broad area of the law that includes non-criminal cases.
