Trust and estate law is intrinsically related to property law in both obvious and obscure ways. At Bury & Co, our attorneys understand this, and we recognize that while residential and commercial real estate transactions are complicated enough as is, often our clients have neglected to safeguard the disposition of their real and personal property in the event of death. Consequently, we counsel clients on the distinctions separating probate and non-probate property; we advise clients on various means by which to convert probate property into non-probate property; we draft, review, and revise wills and codicils, as well as trust deeds and testamentary trusts to ensure that title to property is exonerated, or not, in accordance with our clients wishes; we serve as executors and administer estates; and, we represent beneficiaries seeking to challenge an executor’s decision, or a decedent’s testamentary capacity.
