Estate Administration

Tarick Loutfi & Associates represents individuals, families, and financial institutions in the administration of estates and trusts. We help our clients through the probate process to carry out the wishes of the decedent’s by collecting the assets, curing any debts or bills, and distributing the assets in accordance with the decedent’s will or the State’s intestacy laws. 

We also help clients involved with trust administration – overseeing all trust-related matters and preventing possible disputes from arising.

What is Probate?

Probate is the court-mandated process that administers the decedent's estate. If a valid will is already in place, the process will move along smoothly as existing debts will be paid and the estate will be administered to heirs and beneficiaries as specified in the document.

Difficulties arise when no will was left, the document was incomplete or not up to date, or if the validity of the will is called into question by prospective heirs and beneficiaries. In such instances, we use our more than 20 years of experience litigating and defending estate and probate matters to see that your voice is heard and that your loved one's estate is properly distributed.

Probate Litigation

For individuals or families with wills, trusts, or other estate plans in place, going through the probate process after the loss of a loved one can be relatively seamless. However, if the decedent failed to leave a will, or if there is a dispute regarding the validity of the will, administration of the estate can be drawn out, tedious, emotionally taxing, and incredibly costly. 

At Tarick Loutfi & Associates, we will help you and your family move through the probate process as quickly and stress-free as possible by arming you with clear, compassionate, and experienced advice from the initial assessment to when your dispute is resolved.
