Probate & Trust Administration

Administering the probate estate of a loved one can be legally challenging and emotionally draining. Maslon's experienced estate planning attorneys will work to help you avoid probate and trust issues, yet stand ready to deal with them effectively on your behalf if they should arise. We help estate representatives carry out their responsibilities as efficiently and expeditiously as possible, whether that involves quickly completing the probate estate administration or helping to properly administer trust assets.

We excel at assembling and managing assets, establishing and maintaining accounting systems, tax planning, and tax-return preparation, to maximize estate value while minimizing tax burdens. Also, when necessary, we put our extensive experience to work to represent your interests before state and federal courts and administrative bodies, the IRS, and the Minnesota Department of Revenue. We also advise trustees and trust beneficiaries across a full range of funding, distribution, fiduciary, and tax issues.

Contact one of our attorneys to learn more about how we can help with your probate or trust responsibilities.
