McCarthy, you can find an Atlanta estate administration lawyer with a decade of experience providing legal advice and guidance.

The Probate Process

Did your loved one die intestate, which means without a will, or did he or she have an estate plan in place that outlined how the inheritance would be passed onto beneficiaries? Whatever the case may be, Brian C. McCarthy can help you. He will guide you through the probate process, if it is required. He will help you read and interpret the will, if there is one. If a trust was created, he will provide guidance on administering it.

If probate is required, the court-supervised process will typically take between eight months and a year. In this process, the deceased's assets will be inventoried, debts and taxes will be paid, and remaining assets will be transferred into the proper hands. Mr. McCarthy will handle every aspect of the probate process and related matters, standing by your side from start to finish, so you can focus on being with your family.

Estate Disputes

Mr. McCarthy is also available to assist those whose have questions about another person who has been placed in charge of the administration of an estate. Are you concerned that the person is doing something wrong?
