Brooklyn Probate and Estate Administration Attorney

Wills and Trusts Lawyer


In Brooklyn and throughout New York many estates will have to go through probate. Probate is the court-supervised process where the decedent's assets are identified, debts are paid, and any remaining assets are distributed to the beneficiaries. 

The Brooklyn, New York (Kings County) Surrogates Court handles all probate matters related to decedents who resided in Brooklyn, New York when they died.

Probate is the required process to pass ownership of the decedent's probate assets to his or her beneficiaries. If the decedent left a will, it will be ineffective unless the will passes through probate court; therefore, one can understand the importance of probate.

Does an executor need a lawyer?

If you have been nominated as the executor, you may be wondering if you need an attorney. A personal representative is well advised work with a qualified attorney in order to assist them in the administration of the decedent's estate. Since a number of legal issues arise, many of these issues are unfamiliar to non-attorneys.

With 30 years of experience working as a probate lawyer Robert Adler is very familiar with New York's probate laws and what types of issues you're likely to encounter.
