Gloucester Probate Law

Probate ∙ Conservatorships ∙ Settling Estates

At Cushing & Dolan, P.C., we provide clients with comprehensive probate administration and litigation counsel. With experienced lawyers on our staff, some of whom are also certified public accountants (CPAs) or hold advanced legal degrees in taxation (LL.M.), our attorneys bring a wealth of wisdom and experience to our clients at any stage in probate.

Because probate is not something most people spent a lot of time dealing with, most people facing probate do so with little to no experience. It is paramount if you have become a trustee, estate administrator, will executor or beneficiary, to seek competent legal counsel. Without proper experience, your rights could be compromised or you could be facing serious exposure to liability without even knowing it. Our Gloucester probate law attorneys have the experience and knowledge to help you protect your interests through the entire process.

Probate Administration

We represent trustees, will executors, estate administrators and other fiduciaries. We can help you:

  • Make timely and accurate accountings
  • Act in good faith
  • Make intelligent and informed decisions about your agency role
  • Fulfill all of your other fiduciary duties to avoid claims of breach of fiduciary duty

The best time to minimize problems in probate is long before a case is anywhere near probate: at the estate and tax planning stage years earlier. We always prefer to handle cases at this stage, because a well-conceived and comprehensive estate plan avoids the confusion and discord that usually bring an estate into probate. However, the reality is that many people walk into an inheritance situation where the estate plan wasn't drafted properly or there are other confusing matters that need to be worked out.

We are here to represent your interests in probate and help you make sure everything goes through smoothly and confidentially.

Probate Litigation

With our experience, knowledge and reputation, we are an aggressive, effective probate litigation team. We represent fiduciaries as well as beneficiaries, debtors and other interested parties in a wide range of probate litigation issues.
