Estate Administration

The legal administration of a person’s estate, whether through probate, in accordance with the terms of a trust, or with a small estate affidavit, can present a variety of legal issues and obligations that must be carefully considered and followed by the person entrusted with the duty.

At Campbell & Miller, PLLC, we work with individuals who have been named by a decedent as personal representative (executor), or trustee, or are simply the heir or beneficiary of someone’s estate, to evaluate which assets need legal administration, and to properly pass the assets to the legal recipient.  We also ensure that creditors are properly notified in accordance with Washington law, and that only valid and properly presented claims are paid by the estate.  The job of administering a person’s estate should not be taken lightly, and should only be undertaken with sound legal advice:

Our estate administration services include:

  • Probate
  • Nonprobate estate settlement
  • Small estate affidavits
  • Trust administration for trustees and beneficiaries
  • Rights of surviving spouses

Whether you have been named personal representative, need advice about passing your assets to your heirs or any have other estate planning or administration questions, we provide straightforward, prudent legal advice and services. Please call us at (253) 851-5924 to set up an appointment.
