Probate Matters

In Massachusetts, the probate and family courts handle a broad range of legal concerns in the general categories of family law (divorce, adoption, paternity, etc.) and probate matters, such as:
  • The distribution of property and assets in an estate in accordance with the will (if there is one) or the law (when a person dies intestate, or without a will)
  • The proper administration of trusts and estates, including settling all debts and tax liabilities
  • Accusations that an executor has failed in his or her fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the heirs or beneficiaries of an estate
  • The appointment of a guardian or conservator for minor children and mentally ill, aged and infirm or physically disabled adults
Whether you are an executor/Personal Representative of an estate and you need experienced legal guidance in fulfilling your legal and ethical duty, or a family member in need of assistance to protect the health, safety and legal rights of a minor or at-risk adult, the capable Chelmsford probate attorneys at Kurland & Grossman, P.C., can help.
