Probate and Estate Administration

Dealing with the estate of a loved one is a very hard thing to contemplate, but it is a very important process that needs to be undertaken.

Here at Rubin Lewis O’Brien we take the time to help with the process in a caring and empathetic manner.

One of the first steps to take is determining whether there is a Will.  If there is, then this will appoint Executors to deal with the administration of the estate and will detail who the beneficiaries are and what they will receive.  If there is no Will, then the law says who can deal with the administration, and the law says who will receive a share of the estate.

Sometimes, there is a Will but there are some issues to deal with such as beneficiaries who have died, property that was not owned by the deceased or other issues such as a missing or incomplete Will.

Our specialist lawyers can guide you through the processes involved in administering an estate swiftly, efficiently and in a cost-effective way.  We can do as little or as much of the administration for you as you want us to, and we will always seek to keep in regular contact and without using baffling legal jargon.

Client Feedback

“May I take this opportunity to thank you for your care and sensitive attention in dealing with my father-in-law's estate and previously for that of my late mother.”

Client 32PC

“Truly wonderful service from Rubin Lewis O’Brien. Both me and my partner used lockdown to get a few jobs completed that we’d being putting off for months. Our wills were at the top of this list; one to be updated and one to be started from scratch. Kate Toner was assigned to look after us and from the initial communication and then subsequent phone calls every detail was dealt with in a truly professional manner with all questions and queries answered using her wealth of knowledge and experience. Kate and her colleague even came to our house to witness the signing for us which was truly appreciated. Can’t recommend the service highly enough and a big thank you to Rubin, Lewis O’Brien and to Kate in particular for the outstanding service received.”
