Estate and Trust Administration ​

When someone passes, administering a trust or an estate can be an overwhelming and significant responsibility.  Here at Illumine Legal LLC, we thoughtfully advise our clients on various legal matters that accompany a person’s passing and strive to make the experience easier. We strategically find the most economical and efficient process to meet the needs of the family while preserving the assets of the trust or estate.  We do this by reviewing executed wills or living trusts, assist with opening a probate, administering the matter in the accurate jurisdiction according to the law, and mindfully advise on the management of the assets and day-to-day tasks of the administration.

What’s Probate and Trust Administration ?

Administration of a trust or an estate can easily become complicated and challenging. There are a range of complex issues to consider during the administration, including the management of real estate, gift, estate, and income tax issues, interests in business entities, or the preservation of pre-death lawsuits.

Our team has decades of combined experience assisting clients through estate and trust administrations. We have handled matters ranging from simple small estates and uncontested probate proceedings to highly contested trust or estate proceedings involving litigation and large, complicated estates of the wealthiest decedents in the nation.  No matter the size or where your proceeding is in the probate process, we can assist you in moving your case to completion.
