Experienced Probate Attorney in North Easton, Massachusetts
Guiding you through the process of probate and estate administration
Probate follows what is typically a painful emotional loss. At the Law Office of Kevin G. McIntyre, P.C., you will find a knowledgeable and meticulous probate attorney with 28 years of experience in probate law. I know how to ease the stress of probate by guiding executors and beneficiaries through the complex process.
I understand that most executors and beneficiaries have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the estate administration process. I can guide you through all aspects of probate, including:
- Filing the will with the Massachusetts probate court
- Developing the best strategy for fairly and expeditiously probating the estate
- Finding and collecting assets
- Closing and opening bank accounts
- Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
- Paying estate taxes
- Valuing, managing, preserving and liquidating the estate
- Locating beneficiaries
- Hiring experts, when appropriate
Valuing and managing the estate
I assist executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. I have a team of experts available to assist in every aspect of estate probate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisors, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist with executor duties. I can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.
Even in apparently straightforward estate cases, there are sometimes disputes between beneficiaries. My professional courtroom presence can calm the emotionally charged process of probating a challenged will or disputed executor or judicial decision. When it is in the best interests of my client to preserve cordial familial relationships, I am adept at mediating these disputes. When necessary, I assertively defend my client’s beneficiary rights within the Massachusetts probate court.
