Assisting and Representing Fiduciaries
Settling an estate or managing a trust can be a daunting and time-consuming job. The duties are not only demanding, but often second-guessed by family members or the probate judge. The experienced attorneys of Cushing & Dolan, P.C., can help you navigate the complexities of Massachusetts probate law, and fulfill your mission thoroughly and efficiently.
We represent fiduciaries (executors, trustees, conservators) in the Greater Boston area and statewide. We commonly counsel out-of-state fiduciaries charged with estate-related duties in Massachusetts. Arrange a free consultation today.
