Probate Administration And Estate Disputes

When a family member passes away, the individual named the personal representative for the estate shoulders important practical burdens along with emotional ones. Navigating all the steps required for estate administration is an intimidating prospect, even for the sharpest and best educated nonlawyers. Conflict within your family, creditor claims and other issues must be addressed promptly and effectively.

Clear Guidance And Determined Representation For Personal Representatives And Heirs

Clients who turn to me, attorney H. Andrew Reckson, benefit from genuine sensitivity and compassion along with legal skills honed over more than two decades. My discipline and detail focus are critical assets for anyone tasked with settling a substantial estate near Rockville, Silver Spring, elsewhere in Maryland or in Northern Virginia. When inheritance disputes and high-value creditor claims factor into the equation, I am staunchly determined to settle them via the path that best protects my clients' financial interests and futures.

I will hear you out and provide honest, forthright advice if you are, for example:

  • A personal representative (sometimes called an "executor") in need of complete estate administration services focused on satisfying all legal requirements as efficiently as possible and protecting you from personal liability
  • A grieving family member who suspects undue influence over the deceased person, other wrongdoing or bias that threatens to deprive you of your full, rightful inheritance

Turn To A Proven Negotiator, Mediator And Litigator

Readiness for estate litigation is vital, but rushing into a will contest, trust contest or action to remove the personal representative can inflame a problem unnecessarily and damage relationships.

If you need an attorney prepared to go the distance to achieve the just outcome your loved one intended, I am ready for that fight.
