Elgin Probate and Estate Administration Lawyers

Serving Executors and Estate Administrators Throughout Kane County and Beyond

The probate process entails a number of tasks, including paying the debts of the deceased and distributing his or her assets according to his or her stated wishes. The estate administration process is broader and includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased's assets. If you have been named the administrator or executor of an estate, you have been entrusted to perform a number of complicated tasks. If you have never taken on this role, it can be very difficult. Further, as the executor or administrator, you have a fiduciary duty to correctly perform these various tasks. The failure to do so could subject you to personal liability.

If you are the executor or administrator of an estate and are not familiar with your duties, it is important to work with an experienced probate attorney. The Elgin law firm of Brady & Jensen has served as the executor or administrator to numerous estates. Our estate planning attorneys can efficiently perform the various duties in these processes, including:

  • Identifying and compiling all estate assets
  • Giving creditors notice to file claims against the estate
  • Paying valid claims and defending against invalid claims
  • Paying taxes and filing tax returns
  • Distributing assets to the beneficiaries

Brady & Jensen is one of the largest law firms in Kane County and the oldest, having served clients since 1868. We offer a strong tradition, experience and skill to see you through this process.
