Helping Clients through Probate and Trust Administration
At Mazza Law we believe that preserving the wishes of our clients honors their legacy. Whether you need to administer a probate estate for a loved one, administer a trust, or need legal assistance to manage complex estate issues, our attorneys at Mazza Law can explain your duties and obligations in simple terms with complete transparency and compassion.
The complexity of estate administration depends on the size of an estate, whether the Decedent passed away with a Will, a Trust, or no estate plan, and whether the estate plan documents are subject to legal challenges or are likely to be contested by interested parties, heirs, devisees, or beneficiaries. At Mazza Law, we provide legal services for probate and trust administration. Our attorneys can expertly assist you with the required Court filings and guide you through the administration process. Our goal is to help you navigate through and expedite the process, whether it is simple, complex, or heavily litigated.
Probate Administration Services
In Arizona, Probate is a legal process used to administer both testate and intestate estates. The probate process can be used to authenticate a will or determine the heirs of an estate, appoint a Personal Representative of the estate, identify and notify creditors, establish an inventory and accounting that details date of death values of estate assets, pay costs of administration and any final debts, prepare and file final tax returns, and distribute the remainder of an estate to the named devisees and heirs.
Trust Administration Services
In Arizona, if an individual established a Trust during their lifetime or created a testamentary Trust, such Trust needs to be properly administered. The trust administration process involves managing the property in the Trust as directed, which may include distributing the trust assets to the named beneficiaries. The administration of a trust may be a simple process. However, some trust estates are more complex and require a much more involved trust administration process. Our law firm handles both simple and complex trust administration matters. All trust matters, whether simple or complex, should follow basic steps to minimize potential exposure to liability for the Trustee, and the attorneys at Mazza Law are here to guide you through that process.
Our founder, Danny Mazza, has been listed as a “Top Probate Attorney,” and as the recipient of the “Clients Choice Award” from Avvo, as a “Rising Star,” and locally, as “Best of the Valley,” for estate planning and probate. We offer big-firm quality with small firm attention – your case will be managed by a Scottsdale probate and trust administration attorney, not an assistant or paralegal.
