Trusts & Estates Administration
When a person dies and estate administration becomes necessary, we provide for the probate of Wills, or, in the situation where a Will does not exist the administration of an intestate (“dying without a Will”) estate. Mr. Glinsky and Jason Jones, Managing Attorney, are expert in efficient day-to-day estate administration and planning, which present opportunities for maximizing income and estate tax savings. The Firm has prepared hundreds of complex federal and state estate tax returns and related governmental filings. Mr. Glinsky has also handled well more than one hundred difficult estate and gift tax audits with the Internal Revenue Service.
The Firm frequently maintains all the books, records and accounts of the estates and trusts that we administer, thereby relieving our clients of many administrative burdens, while ensuring that the fiduciaries are aware of and fulfill their statutory duties and obligations.
The Firm, and Mr. Jones in particular, is also experienced in appearing in Surrogate’s Court, the court responsible for handling probate of Wills and overseeing trusts, decedent’s estates, and guardianships. When necessary, the Firm aggressively protects the interests of beneficiaries, creditors and others in disputed estate and trust matters, including Will contests.
