Estate Administration: What It Is And How We Can Help

Most people understand the importance of estate planning but are less clear on the process or purpose of estate administration. So what is estate administration? In short, it is the legal process of settling a loved one's estate (after he or she passes away) according to the terms set forth in the will and other estate planning documents.

At The Hamme Law Firm, LLC, we make estate administration as simple and convenient as possible during what is often a difficult and emotional time for families. Our goal is to guide you through the process without undue delay or frustration, saving you time, money and potential family conflict.
