  • Verifying the validity of a will and handling any will contests
  • Identifying or arranging the appointment of an executor or trustee
  • Paying bills and making an inventory of assets
  • Dividing or selling real estate or other property
  • Handling any issues of breach of fiduciary duty by executors or trustees
