Experienced Long Island Estate Probate Litigation Attorney

Estate, Probate and Trust Administration

When you have been named as administrator, executor or personal representative of an estate, even if the deceased left a well-drafted will, you want an experienced lawyer to guide you through the probate process. You’ll be asked to do a number of things you have probably never done before, and as the executor, you’ll have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the estate. An experienced attorney can help you avoid any pitfalls.

At the Law Office of Bonnie Lawston, we have provided comprehensive counsel in estate administration matters for over 20 years. We will help you understand the law and the process, so that you always have a clear sense of your rights and responsibilities.
