Assuming the responsibility of settling your loved one's final affairs and administering their estate is no easy task — especially if substantial assets are involved. In the early weeks following their passing, you must initiate the estate administration process. This can be enormously difficult to accomplish without a legal background, especially during a period of grief.
Furthermore, you may inadvertently make mistakes that can end up requiring the assistance of a lawyer to resolve.
At Huckabee, Weiler, & Levengood, P.C., we have over 30 years of experience in the estate administration process and working with grieving families. No matter how complex your loved one's estate, we provide comprehensive guidance to ensure the process is done right.

The responsibilities of a trustee and personal representative in probate are extensive and time-consuming. Pennsylvania estate law is difficult to interpret and, without legal advice, you risk the chance of missing key filing deadlines and making other technical errors.
