PROBATE / TRUST ADMINISTRATION

disinheriting, Dublin Estate Planning Attorney

Whether you are going through the probate process with a will, or need help with the administration of a trust, Lewman Law, APC is here to help.

PROPER ESTATE PLANNING ALLOWS YOUR ESTATE TO AVOID PROBATE PROCEEDINGS

Lewman Law, APC is committed to leading you through the complicated probate process, or a trust administration with skillful and compassionate guidance.

After an individual has passed away, properly administering the estate to meet all legal requirements and properly distribute the assets to the beneficiaries is essential. Paying their bills and taxes must be performed by an authorized representative. If the individual’s assets were held in trust, the successor trustee can proceed without court oversight. If there is a Will or no Will in existence at the time of the death, the required steps for administering the estate will likely require filing a Probate Petition in Superior Court.
Whether trustee of a trust administration or executor of a probate proceeding, the tasks can be complicated and confusing. The law requires specific tasks to be performed in a timely manner. A trustee or executor has a very high “fiduciary” duty to the beneficiaries of the estate. Having the assistance of Lewman Law, APC can help one avoid potentially costly mistakes.

“I am so pleased with my dealings with John Lewman. What prompted me to do this review, is that he consistently exceeds my expectations on his responsiveness. I have such trust in him because of this, and also the comprehensive way he answers my questions. He is patient and I’m never left feeling “rushed off” like with some other lawyers. The legal documentation he produces also exceeds my expectations. He’s on top of it, and knows what he’s doing. I’m extremely happy to have him as a resource, and I encourage others to seek out his services. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you, John, for everything.”

Lea P – Danville, California

“I highly recommend John Lewman, Attorney at Law, for any type of legal need and advice. I had a particularly involved case involving personal trust distributions. I did not know where to start. I was referred to Mr. Lewman who assisted me from beginning to end, took all my calls and responded immediately regardless of day/time. He accurately assessed the situation, asked appropriate questions and within a short period of time, the trusts were set up to the letter of the law. I shall refer all my clients, family and friends to him. For my personal financial and legal matters, I will be returning to Lewman Law.”

Mike F – Pleasanton, California

“I had multiple legal issues needing to be resolved…John’s diversity and understanding of law was a key part in reaching settlements and resolving my legal problems. During both of my cases in front of two different judges it was apparent that John was well known and respected by colleagues and peers. One of the judges tells me I have a good lawyer. Not only is John a good lawyer but he is also a very good litigator. I would recommend Lewman Law, and John Lewman to friends and family.”
