Greenwich Probate Attorney

Last Will and TestamentHelping Families Move Forward

In the aftermath of a loved one's passing, it can be difficult for families to take charge of settling the details of his or her final estate. During this often emotionally difficult time, Beltrano Law provides compassionate guidance and the utmost integrity for individuals and families in southern Connecticut. Led by Greenwich probate lawyer Michelle Beltrano, our team takes personal interest in helping clients through the probate and estate administration process.

During her nearly two decades of work as a health care practitioner and advisor Michelle has helped many families in the areas of hospice care and end-of-life care. Through a combination of insightful guidance and empathetic collaboration with her clients, she seeks to help families move forward in a smooth and orderly fashion. From filling return tax documents, to filling administrative paper work, Michelle and her team can do it all.

How We Can Help Your Family

Quite often people are under the impression that they can avoid the probate process if they implement a few estate planning tools. Despite this myth, in Connecticut there are tax documents and administrative forms that need to be filed regardless of the size of your estate. Whether you are the executor of an estate or a court appointed administrator, Beltrano Law provides legal guidance to all fiduciaries.

Michelle and her team can help you:

  • Gather all financial records, life insurance policies, annuities and other essential documents
  • File the will and application for probate or appointment of fiduciary
  • Gather the assets of the estate and file for land records if needed
  • File an inventory of the estate and obtain funding if needed for estate administration
  • Notify creditors and other important entities of your loved one's death and settle outstanding debts
  • File tax returns and pay applicable taxes and fees
  • File a final estate accounting and closing statement and help distribute assets to beneficiaries

The use of trusts in modern estate planning has increased dramatically. Trust administration involves the transfer of assets held in trust that are managed and distributed by a trustee or co-trustees. Trustees have a fiduciary duty to the beneficiaries of the trust and must comply with their statutory obligations. Our firm provides a high level of sophisticated yet personalized service to trustees and designated trust beneficiaries.
