Our Services

Our Estate Administration Services

At McCarthy & Akers PLC, we assist with the administration of estates of all sizes, and offer advice to clients who are executors to help streamline the process and save the estate money and time.

Our approach is direct and efficient. We make the process as simple as possible by using our many years of experience to avoid the missteps and mistakes that many first-time executors can make with estate administration. Knowing the ins and outs of the process saves our clients both time and money.

We also handle many estates in their entirety, acting as the personal representative of the estate from beginning to end so that no family members need to carry the burden of administering an estate after the passing of a loved one.

How We're Different

We deliver all the resources you need under one roof.

We have handled thousands of estates over the last two decades. There are few firms that have the breadth of knowledge and experience that our firm puts to work for our clients.

Because of our experience, we offer a “one-stop shop” for real estate law, corporate matters and litigation support. Many other firms do not have all of these resources under one roof.

What is estate administration?

When a loved one dies, someone must be in charge of managing their estate—a person generally designated as the executor. Estate Administration is the process by which the executor must collect property and assets, inventory them, assess their value, pay debts and taxes, and distribute any remaining property to the heirs and beneficiaries.

To put it another way, estate administration is the process by which the estate is collected and managed after someone passes away. It includes payment of debts and taxes, and distribution of any remaining assets to heirs and beneficiaries.
