Smooth And Timely Settlement Of Affairs After Death.

If you are the executor or personal administrator of an estate, you may discover that while the decedent's last will may have protected the inheritance beneficiary from probate court and federal estate taxes, it did nothing to handle the affairs of the estate. Very often there are creditors to be contacted, bank accounts to close, and stocks and bonds to be converted and distributed. There may even be pledges to a church or civic organization to be discovered and fulfilled.

Baird is an Indianapolis estate-planning law firm that helps executors and administrators understand probate law and tackle the tough job of bringing a person's affairs to an honorable close.

I understand the concerns you may have as an executor or estate administrator. I know how to make sure things are handled in a timely and honorable manner.

If you are in a position to administer the final affairs of someone's estate, contact the probate and trust lawyer offices of Barbara J. Baird to schedule a consultation to discuss the concerns you have.
