Probate and Trust Administration

The Law Office of Stoddard L. Smith, P.A., offers comprehensive administrative services in the probating of wills, the administration of trusts, and guardianship and conservatorship proceedings. Occasionally, the attorney will serve as fiduciary if the need for an independent fiduciary is warranted or when administrative expertise is required.  The firm’s staff and attorneys work together to develop a plan for administration of estate matters from start to finish.  We strive to ensure our clients have a clear understanding of the process, their duties, and the outcomes.  We consistently work with accountants and other tax professionals to address the myriad of tax concerns affecting our clients.

In addition to taking a sensitive and conscientious approach to its handling of these matters, the firm emphasizes efficiency and cost-effectiveness with respect to probate and administration issues, and, whenever possible, provides these types of administrative services to its clients at its reduced rates for paralegals.
