How a Probate Lawyer Helps You - Illinois, Michigan, Arizona

April 15, 2016 - Categories: Legal Articles, Michigan, Illinois, Arizona

If you have been appointed to serve as the personal representative of a loved one’s estate and you are not sure what your duties and obligations are during the probate process, it is important to seek help from a probate attorney. We can help you walk through the probate procedure step by step and ensure that you are properly administering your loved one’s estate.

It is important to understand that a person administering an estate does so as a “fiduciary.” This means that the personal representative has a legal duty to act for the benefit of others. The personal representative is in a position of trust and confidence. Thus, the personal representative has fiduciary obligations to the beneficiaries of the estate and to act in their best interests and according to the terms of the deceased’s estate plan.

When you work with the probate lawyers at Access Legal Care, PLLC, we will assist you with a wide range of tasks for you, including:
