Estate Administration or Probate Lawyer & Legal Services

Estate Administration

An “estate” is a fictitious entity set up to wrap up a person’s affairs after death. Often, when a person dies and they own assets or have debts, an estate is required to be opened and a personal representative appointed to administer the estate. If the deceased person died with a Will, the personal representative is called an Executor.

If the deceased person died without a Will, the personal representative is known as an Administrator. Whether a person dies with our without a Will, the estate administration process (often called probate) is a tricky process, made more difficult by a number of court-imposed deadlines and complex laws that must be followed. If you’ve recently lost a loved one and are not sure where to begin in administering his or her estate, please call us.

Not every deceased person needs an estate opened for him or her and so it’s best to consult with an experienced and caring attorney before going to the Courthouse. To talk to an experienced caring attorney today about your situation, please contact us.

    Alexander C. – Harnett County Property Owner

    “Reggie Kelly is a fantastic attorney with fantastic paralegals. My wife and I have been using him and his firm since 1983 when we first purchased property in Harnett County 37 years ago. He offers excellent legal advice and guidance. He never gets in a hurry to get us out the door because of his next appointment. He always takes the time needed to check out all of the issues that might come up. Reggie Kelly is a proud American and he loves our country and he wants everyone to do well. Reggie Kelly is an even finer person than he is a fantastic attorney and we are very fortunate to also be able to call him and his wife Cheryl our friends. We give him a 10 STAR Review!”
