What Is Estate and Probate Law?

Probate is the legal process through which the Executor of your will goes to court and winds up your affairs by distributing the assets of your estate accordingly to the provision of your will. If you pass away without leaving a will, then your assets will be distributed according to state law, through a process called Estate Administration. If you need help navigating these legal waters, the team at Vernon & Associates, P.C. can help. Call us today to schedule a consultation at our law office in Jamaica.


Probate and Estate Administration Includes:

  • Will validation to the probate court
  • Inventory of the deceased person’s property
  • Determining the value of the deceased person’s property
  • Evaluating debt, valid creditors, and any taxes payments due
  • Property distribution as the will or the law directs
  • Ensuring that attorney and court fees are paid from estate assets
  • Properly managing the rights of beneficiaries
