Estate Planning & Administration

The estate planning attorneys at Lacy Katzen are experienced at helping to guide you through the estate planning and administration process.   No matter how simple or complex your estate plan is we will work with you to establish Power of Attorney, Health Care Proxy, Wills and Trusts.    At Lacy Katzen, we make it our mission to carry out your estate plan in a sensitive and respectful manner—all the while keeping in mind that you worked a lifetime to build a legacy to leave behind when you are gone.

What is Estate Administration?

After a loved one has passed away many things need to be done such as gathering assets, bills must be paid, and assets must be distributed.  The process of managing a person’s affairs through to completion after death is called estate administration. Our estate administration attorneys will build relationships with those whom you select as Power of Attorney, Executors of your Will and the others you place your trust in to successfully complete the administration of your estate and personal affairs.  Our Estate Administration lawyers will represent executors and administrators through the process.

We understand that a person’s final wishes are sacred.  Honoring them is our privilege.
