Queens Probate and Estate Administration Attorney

Wills and Trusts Lawyer


In Queens County many estates will have to go through probate. Probate is the court process of re-titling the assets held in the name of a deceased person into the name of a living person or trust.

The Queens, New York Surrogates Court handles all probate matters related to decedents who resided in Queens, New York when they died.

If there is a valid will the distribution of property is controlled by the will.

If a Queens resident dies without a will, New York State law will determine the distribution and management of their estate. This is known as the law of intestacy.
