Estate Administration

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never an easy process. In addition to the loss, there suddenly becomes an array of responsibilities for managing and winding-up the affairs of the deceased. We understand these challenges at MacDonald Illig and strive to make the process as stress-free as possible. We will provide you with an honest and thoughtful strategy for administering any estate that carefully considers all aspects of the process with a focus on minimizing taxes.

Our attorneys have extensive experience representing fiduciaries in the administration of estates of all types and sizes.  Our strengths in this area include tax planning during the estate administration process, valuation and discounting of estate assets for tax purposes where appropriate, preparing and evaluating inventories and appraisements, and monitoring the creditor claim process. We work closely with each estate executor or administrator to ensure that he or she is involved in every facet of the administration, from the initial estate decisions to the final distribution of assets to the beneficiaries.  Our goal is to complete the administration as efficiently as possible without jeopardizing the rights of the beneficiaries or subjecting the fiduciary to liability. We will also handle any estate litigation matters that arise during the administration process and work closely with our Litigation Group attorneys to provide our clients a superior service.
