There are a number of administrative steps that must be completed upon the death of a family member. While some of these tasks can be completed independently, there are certain tasks that may require assistance from a Staten Island estate management attorney.

At the Depalo Law firm, we help clients deal with a variety of tasks that may arise after a loved one dies. If a family member has passed away and you are the executor or administrator, our professional legal services may prove beneficial in ways you may not have anticipated.

Steps in Managing an Estate

Some steps you may need to take after a family member dies include:

  • Locating the will
  • Identifying bank accounts and assets
  • Calculating date of death values
  • Clearing up debt
  • Managing real estate and sale of real estate
  • Business succession planning
  • Contacting insurance agents, accountants, and other professionals with whom the deceased may have worked
  • Contacting life insurance companies

Our law firm works with the executor of an estate who is named in the will as well as family members who may have legal matters to settle after a loved one dies. We take an organized and step-by-step approach to handling these legal matters, ensuring that all the details of your case are considered.
