Wills, Trusts And Estates

Drafting Wills And Trusts; Administration Of Estates

The death of a family member always brings sadness and change. Mourners do not need legal headaches on top of their grief. The best way to avoid legal hassles following a person's death is to do some simple planning and preparation. At Whitestone Young, PC, we can help you draft a will and do some simple estate planning that can ease the transition and transfer of property following your death. Sometimes, it is helpful to put some property in trust to preserve or assure the orderly and efficient transfer of your assets after your death. Even if you have no will or trust, title to your property and accounts must be transferred. This is done through probate court, and our attorneys can help your heirs with that as well. If you have been named as someone's personal representative, executor or trustee, we can help you administer the estate in the most effective and efficient way possible.

Will Contests

Sometimes, the circumstances surrounding the execution of a will or a last-minute change in a will are suspicious. Probate courts resolve such disputes in contested proceedings, much like a trial. Our attorneys represent clients in all courts, at all levels, throughout the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.
