Baltimore Estate Administration Lawyer
Simple And Complex Administration
To ensure that their property passes to their heirs in the manner they choose, many people create a will and/or trusts. When there is no estate plan, however, estate administration becomes more complicated. At Alice G. Pinderhughes, P.A., we have seen what happens when there is no estate plan in place. Our lawyer works hard to keep peace between family members when there are will contests or orphans court disputes.
We can assist your family with complex and simple estate administration for small and large or high net worth estates in Maryland and Washington, D.C. Attorney Alice G. Pinderhughes has experience in related areas of law such as family law, real estate law and business law, as well as a funeral license. She can administer any size estate effectively and efficiently.
Handling Contested And Uncontested Estates
During estate administration, the personal representative must file the necessary documents, gather assets, pay debts and divide the estate. We can assist your family with estate administration, including small and large estates as well as those with or without wills. When a person dies without leaving a will, the estate administration is more complex. Our Baltimore estate administration attorney has experience with cases such as these that are litigated in orphans court.
In addition, we can help you if disputes arise. Will disputes can occur between heirs and family members who were not included in the decedent’s will. This can happen in any family, but is especially common when there are children, stepchildren and a former spouse.
Estate, will and trust disputes can also occur if a trustee or personal representative breaches his or her fiduciary duty. This may include issues such as:
- Mismanaging the assets or misappropriating them from the estate
- Fraud or undue influence
- Improper asset distribution
- Failure to provide information to the beneficiaries
Ms. Pinderhughes has experience with contested estates and has litigated these cases.
