Queens Estate Administration

When a loved one passes away, not only are you dealing with a tremendous loss, but you must also deal with the management of your loved ones estate.  Those who are put in charge of the Estate after your loved one passes away must deal with a lot; debt collection, valuation of assets, sale of real estate and other assets, record keeping, preparation of Fiduciary accounting, filing of income tax returns and filing of New York Surrogates Court inventory.  You must also quickly learn how to deal with the courts and unhappy family members who may feel their rights to the estate have been disregarded.  A Queens Estate Administration Lawyer from Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC is often needed to sort out all the details surrounding the estate and transfer of assets.

Your loved one’s preference for an executor of his or her estate is usually indicated in a Will.  If the deceased individual had a Will, a Queens Estate Administration Lawyer will present the Will for probate.  If an executor needs to be appointed however, an Estate Administration Lawyer must file the appropriate paperwork in the New York Surrogates Court.

If no Will exists, the Estate Administration Lawyer will present the Will for administration.  In the absence of a Will, a personal representative will file a petition with the Queens Surrogates Court.  The Court will then appoint an administrator to the estate, often a relative or other loved one.  Considering all of these items that need your attention, it is easy to see why an Estate Administration Lawyer is very helpful.

Client Reviews
Mr. Bilkis handled both my father and mother's estate issues through very difficult times he was compassionate kind and understanding. In fact the whole firm showed great empathy. Despite the emotional hard time we were having that quickly and efficiently handle all the matters that were necessary to get us the result we desired. Can't recommend them enough. B.B.
From the very first phone call to Stephen Bilkis' office, the staff was extremely polite and helpful in assisting me. Mr. Bilkis was honest and upfront with me from the beginning in what he projected the outcome of my case would be; in the end we got better results than either of us anticipated. He was very genuine and compassionate in understanding my situation and how this legal matter could effect not only myself but my family as well. I highly recommend this law firm and will most definitely continue using them for any future legal needs. Jarrett
