Experienced Maryland trust and estates attorneys help guide you through the process
Probate follows what is typically a painful emotional loss. The knowledgeable, meticulous probate attorneys at David L. Scull have more than 44 years of combined experience in probate law and know how to ease the stress of probate by guiding executors and beneficiaries.
The process of probate
Most executors have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the process. We can guide you through the complex probate process, including:
Valuing and managing the estate
Our attorneys assist executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. We have a team of experts available to help in every aspect of estate probate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisers, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist with executor duties. We can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.
Even in apparently straightforward estate cases, there are sometimes disputes between beneficiaries. Our attorneys’ professional courtroom presence can calm the emotionally-charged process of probating a challenged will, or disputed executor or judicial decision. When it is in the best interests of our client to preserve cordial familial relationships, our attorneys are adept at mediating these disputes. When necessary, we assertively defend our client’s beneficiary rights within the Maryland probate court.
