Counsel and Assistance for Streamlined Administration

The probate process should be a streamlined and efficient one.  There are many techniques under Maryland probate that could make the process rather simple and less cumbersome. One recent innovation is “Modified Administration” which essentially provides for a self-supervised administration, with little court intervention. There are other time-saving techniques in handling the administrative process and we would be happy to assist you in this regard. While the major overhaul of the Maryland inheritance tax provided significant tax savings in the distribution of assets in a Maryland estate, the new Maryland estate tax enacted in 2004 may generate more tax, particularly for those who fail to plan accordingly. Finally, with proper advice, the re-titling of assets from the decedent to the decedent’s beneficiaries should be a process that is efficient, streamlined and as painless as possible.
