Dealing with a Deceased Estate?

Being named as the executor of an estate comes with a range of duties and obligations. The role of an executor or administrator is unpaid, time consuming, and a highly-involved job that will often exceed 6 months of your time.

Executors are personally liable for the administration of the estate. It is prudent to employ legal support to aid you often during a personal period of loss or grievance.
