Probate and Trust

Belson Law Group advises beneficiaries under wills and trusts, and fiduciaries charged with their administration. With respect to decedent's estates, we guide the beneficiaries and fiduciaries through the probate and trust administrative process, by appearing in court as required, assisting in the transfer of assets, resolving of claims, and counseling how to best effectuate distributions. We prepare state and federal estate tax returns and work in partnership with the estate's accountants when necessary to ensure that fiduciary income tax matters are properly handled. We also design and implement post-mortem planning techniques that are aimed at the minimization of current and future taxes.
