Cranston Probate Attorney
Guiding you through the process of Rhode Island probate
It's unfortunate that probate must follow so soon after the painful emotional loss of a loved one. At the law office of Robinson & Robinson, Attorneys at Law, we work to ease the stress of probate by guiding executors and beneficiaries through the process.
Most designated executors have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the probate process. Cranston probate attorney Steven A. Robinson has 25 years of experience guiding people through the probate process in Rhode Island. He can assist you with the following:
- Having the will admitted for probate with the appropriate Rhode Island Probate Court
- Developing the best strategy for fairly and expeditiously probating the estate
- Finding and collecting assets
- Closing and opening bank accounts
- Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
- Paying estate taxes
- Locating beneficiaries
- Hiring experts, when appropriate
- Probate litigation because even in apparently straightforward probate cases disputes can arise between beneficiaries and executors or among beneficiaries
Valuing and managing the estate
We can help you obtain expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables.
