Greensburg Probate Lawyers

Probating an Estate in Pennsylvania

When a person dies, everything from his or her estate must be transferred to another person in a process called probate. If you are responsible for probating an estate, it is important to contact experienced Greensburg probate attorneys who can assist with the process.

Because there are certain timelines that must be met throughout the process, it is important to act quickly. Although you have some time to grieve and take personal time, waiting too long can have negative consequences from both a tax standpoint and from a cost standpoint.

At David K. Lucas & Associates, we have more than 40 years of experience working with individuals throughout Western Pennsylvania with all aspects of estate administration, including:

  • Locating and gathering the assets
  • Liquidating the assets
  • Distributing the assets
  • Preparing and filing state and federal tax forms
  • Representing clients in estate contests

If you are the executor of the estate, it is important to protect, manage and control the assets of the estate. In nearly every case, this requires the assistance of an experienced probate lawyer. Because each county has very specific procedural rules, it is important to work with an attorney who is familiar with the procedural rules in your area. During our practice, we have assisted thousands of individuals with probate, and we can use our experience to help make sure your matter moves through in the most effective way possible.
