Experienced Evansville Probate Lawyers

If you were named in the will as the estate executor or successor trustee, or appointed by a probate court as a personal representative or trust administrator, there is a checklist of statutory duties you must carry out. Some tasks are best handled by a lawyer, such as liquidating assets or responding to creditor claims, while other tasks are perhaps tedious but not legally complex.

Our probate and trust attorneys can serve as facilitators — assisting you throughout the process — or we can carry out the bulk of the duties on your behalf. If you do not live in the area, for example, you might have to travel to Evansville once to open the estate, but we could then handle the rest through mail and e-mail correspondence.

We have experience in all facets of estate and trust administration: inventory and valuation of assets, selling the house or partitioning property, paying debts, distributing inheritances, filing tax returns and filing reports with the probate court and state of Indiana.

We also have experience in will contests involving allegations of fraud, undue influence or mental incompetence of the deceased. In most cases, we can resolve these disputes out of court, but we are civil trial lawyers who can vigorously protect the interests of the estate and the named beneficiaries.
