Probate Representation & Estate Administration
“Probate” refers to the legal process by which a deceased person’s outstanding financial obligations are paid, and the deceased person’s property is transferred to those entitled to receive it (e.g. heirs under a Will, or by the laws of intestacy). Even the simplest of probate matters can result in legal issues arising.

Advising on Conservatorship & Guardianship Matters
While the term “probate” is typically used when referring to the process of administering a decedent’s estate after death, in Connecticut, the Probate Court also has jurisdiction over conservatorship and guardianship matters. Conservatorship is the court-supervised process of managing the financial and/or personal affairs of an adult who is determined by the Probate Court to be incapable of managing his or her finances, or unable to care for himself or herself. Guardianship refers to the court-supervised process of managing the financial and/or personal affairs of a person under the age of eighteen (18).
