Probate and estate administration are the processes through which estate assets are transferred after
death. Assets to be transferred under terms of a will go through probate. Assets transferred outside of
a will, such as by operation of law, or those planned for in a trust are handled through an
Administration process. Administration also refers to the process whereby assets are transferred by
rules of the state when there is no will. We can help make the process easier, more efficient, and
provide peace of mind during a difficult time.
