They collectively have more than 50 years of legal experience and know how to ease the stress of probate by skillfully guiding executors and beneficiaries through the complex process.
The process of probate
Many executors have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the process. The lawyers at Olson & Zabriskie can guide you through all aspects of probate, including:
Valuing and managing the estate
Olson & Zabriskie assist executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisors, real estate agents, and other professionals to assist with executor duties. We can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.
Even in seemingly straightforward estate cases, there are sometimes disputes between beneficiaries. Our attorneys’ professional demeanor can assist in calming the emotionally-charged process of probating a challenged will. When it is in the best interests of our client to preserve cordial familial relationships, we are adept at managing these disputes. When necessary, we assertively defend our client’s rights within the Washington probate court.
