Estate Administration

We have been providing clients in Southwest Florida and across the state with quality representation in estate administration matters since 1974. We have brought competence, experience and diligence to our clients' estate issues for over 40 years.

Probate is the legal process by which a person's will is validated by the probate court. Our clients can tell you that we are here to assist them with often complex and unexpected probate issues. If estate administration is on your personal and family agenda in the foreseeable future, contact us to arrange your free initial consultation.

Administering Your Estate

The provisions of a will, or state statutes in the absence of a will, usually determine how an individual's debts are paid and assets are distributed upon his or her death. Estate administration includes the probate process as well as nonprobate transfers of the deceased's assets such as life insurance, annuities, qualified plans and trust assets and compliance with applicable estate tax requirements.

As your estate administration attorneys, we offer our assistance to the personal representative of the estate in the gathering, valuation, accounting and distribution of a decedent's assets. We will also prepare federal and state estate tax returns and locate any other relevant documents to release liens on a decedent's real estate. You have our assurance that all steps will be properly, thoroughly taken to abide by the decedent's intents in accordance with the law.

Please note, should a will contest arise, we are fully prepared to enter into litigation to protect your interests.

Accessible To You

The attorneys at Burandt, Adamski, Feichthaler & Sanchez, PLLC, look forward to discussing your intentions in distributing your assets and in helping to develop a plan to distribute those assets.

We value the long-term relationships we have built with our clients, and we follow through with update services for our estate planning clients to answer their probate questions, resolve will contests or serve as executor, administrator or trustee of an estate.

Customized Service For Every Estate

Whether we are needed to help probate a will or handle an intestate estate, we are always willing to help with any estate regardless of its size. We also excel at representing clients facing contested wills and estate litigation. Above all, you will know that your family's best interests are top priority.

We can propose several important estate planning steps to keep confusion and potentially negative repercussions to a minimum. An estate plan combined with tools such as trusts, wills and powers of attorney can guarantee a happy ending for those you want to benefit. It can also be tax-friendly, sidestep costs of probate, identify health care directives and specify funeral arrangements.
