Probate administration

The attorneys in the Estate & Trust Administration & Litigation Group at Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. have extensive experience in representing clients in the probate administration process. Probate includes both decedent estates and guardianship estates for disabled adults and minors. We represent both individual clients and institutional clients through this process.

For a person who has recently lost a loved one, our attorneys will assist them in administering their loved one's estate from start to finish. We represent estates of all sizes. So, whether a client only needs a Small Estate Affidavit to collect outstanding accounts or whether they need a probate estate opened and administered through the court, our team can assist you by connecting you to an experienced attorney from the beginning. We will walk you through the probate administration process - from the initial investigation of assets through the final distribution of assets. Our attorneys can also handle all aspects of the sale and transfer of both personal property and real estate held by a decedent.

Our attorneys have unique and in-depth knowledge, having represented the Cook County Public Administrator for numerous years. This representation has provided us with experience in all types of probate estates, which gives us the clear advantage over other attorneys.

We commonly have estates that require the filing of a Federal Estate Tax Return, Form 706, and a State Estate Tax Return. The Chuhak & Tecson Estate & Trust Administration & Litigation Group includes attorneys who are CPAs and skilled in tax law. We are proficient in tax preparation related to decedent estates and can assist you with your needs.
