Helping You Resolve Your Probate Matters
When someone passes away, the wealth and debt they accumulated during their life (estate) are administrated and resolved through a court process known as probate. New York probate courts apply state probate laws to interpret the provisions of the decedent’s last will and testament as to how the deceased intended to disburse his or her estate. In probate, the deceased specifies someone to administer their estate in probate. Otherwise, the court appoints someone to do so – also known as an “executor.”
If a relative or friend named you as executor of their estate, you should consult an experienced Westchester County probate attorney for legal advice.

We Can Guide Your Through Probate Proceedings
Under New York law, probate is the process by which courts examine the validity of a decedent’s will, if applicable. The probate court also makes specific findings regarding the valuation of the decedent’s assets and the priority of the decedent’s creditors. The executor of the decedent’s estate will then administer the remaining assets to any beneficiaries and creditors according to the decedent’s intent.
In probate proceedings, the decedent’s estate is distributed with regard to the following assets:
- Real property
- Personal belongings
- Financial instruments
- Financial accounts
