Northern Virginia Estate Litigation Attorney
Responsible Estate and Trust Administration Lawyer
Estate administration and trust administration are processes by which assets are distributed to beneficiaries according to the terms of a will or a trust. Estate administration, often called probate, is the process where a court gives recognition to a will and appoints a representative to oversee payment of the estate’s outstanding debts, administer assets, and ensure proper distribution to the beneficiaries. Trust administration works outside of the probate process, is more private, and often provides more flexibility to the family.
At the law firm of Boring & Pilger, P.C., estate and trust administration has been a central focus of the firm since its founding in 1981. For over 25 years, the attorneys at Boring & Pilger have assisted personal representatives, administrators, and trustees in the administration process.
