Probate And Estate Administration

Probate and estate administration can often be time-consuming and complex, but it is easier with the help of a knowledgeable lawyer who can answer your questions about how the law may apply. At Bernstein & Feldman, P.A., our law firm also guides clients through the Maryland probate process. We take the time to work closely with our clients and answer their questions about the law on probate and estate administration.

Lawyers at our Annapolis, Maryland, law firm use three decades of experience to assist estate administrators in navigating the probate process. After the death of someone close, estate administrators are left with the task of collecting, managing and distributing the estate. Our attorneys work to remove the uncertainty and worry of the surviving family members. We file the necessary petition to open the estate, conduct an inventory and notify creditors, and provide other related services.

Will And Trust Disputes

We also represent clients in will contests, litigating disputes regarding wills and trusts. We manage will contests and other inheritance disputes that occur when the heirs of property cannot agree upon how to divide or dispose of estate property.

There are many reasons to dispute a will or trust:

  • A person's undue influence has led to inaccuracies in an estate plan
  • The will was revoked and is therefore not valid
  • Fraud was involved
  • The testator lacked capacity to properly execute a will
  • Misrepresentation was involved as to key assets or relationships

At Bernstein & Feldman, P.A., we have the resources to help our clients achieve successful results in this complex litigation. We litigate forcefully but work closely and effectively with our own clients. It is always reassuring to know that your attorney is available to speak with you on a regular basis and that you will receive a high level of personalized counsel when needed. It is also important, however, that the firm you hire has the resources and the capability to handle your issues in an effective manner.
