Pittsburgh Probate Lawyer
Compassionate Probate Assistance from a Pittsburgh Attorney
After the death of a loved one, many families are left with an array of questions and responsibilities. Distributing assets, paying debts, settling possible disputes among heirs, and managing any tax issues can seem daunting, especially in a time of grief.
At my office – The Law Offices of Mary Margaret Boyd – I provide a high level of probate and estate administration services to Pittsburgh area families during their time of need. From small estates to those valued in the millions of dollars, I offer efficient and effective legal services at a rate that is affordable to all families.
What is Probate and how can an Attorney Help?
When someone dies, they leave behind assets titled to themselves or jointly with another person. Estate administration requires liquidating the assets, paying down the debts, paying taxes, and distributing the balance among designated heirs. This is what probate, or estate administration, is. As a practical matter, it is very difficult for a non-lawyer to correctly follow the required procedures in probate without the assistance of an attorney.
As an experienced probate attorney, I offer Pittsburgh area, Allegheny County, and Washington County families skilled assistance in all estate administration matters, including:
- Liquidating assets
- Preparing and filing Inheritance Tax Returns
- Preparing and filing documents required by the Register of Wills Office
- Resolving disputes among heirs and will contests
Probate is a complex process with many legal and financial requirements. As a lawyer with over 29 years of legal experience and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Accounting, I have a complete understanding of all aspects of this process.
