Leominster Wills and Estate Settlements Lawyers

Securing Your Rights to the Estate and Property of a Loved One

One of the most difficult tasks imaginable is to confront the complex legal and practical issues involving the probate and settlement of an estate of a recently deceased loved one. There are numerous time-consuming and emotional tasks to undertake in resolving the estate of someone recently deceased. The payment of outstanding bills, the location of numerous bank accounts and life insurance policies, understanding a recently discovered will or amendment to a will, and the prospect of appearing in probate court to secure interests in real and personal property can be exhausting to consider.

Each of our four attorneys have considerable experience in resolving the complex and emotional estate issues which often accompany the death of a loved one. Clients are sometimes relieved to learn after consulting with us that no formal probate of the estate of a loved one is required, and that only the routine filing of certain documents will be necessary to resolve these estates. And, in situations where more formal and time-consuming court involvement is necessary, our attorneys can handle the legal steps necessary to ensure that the estate is settled in a professional, timely and appropriate manner.

Each one of our attorneys has appeared before the probate and family court, where the probate of wills and estates of persons are determined. Our attorneys are known and respected by the judges who settle these estates, and the area attorneys who practice in this area. This familiarity with the court environment where cases of this sort are resolved is invaluable to our clients.

Attorney Robert A. Antonioni has probated many cases involving both wills and estates without a will (known as the administration of an estate). He has provided his clients with a steady presence and practical advice in these important and often emotional situations. He has also represented clients in estate disputes involving contentious disputes between family members and relatives of the deceased, and has represented family members who are being pursued by creditors of the deceased. In all of these cases, attorney Robert A. Antonioni and our other attorneys can provide quick and competent advice and representation to settle the estate issues after the death of a loved one.
