W
hen someone dies, sometimes the legal process of probate must be undertaken to transfer ownership of the deceased person’s property to the people (or charities) who will inherit it. If the person has a will, the property will pass according to the terms of the will and Colorado law. If the person has no will, the property will pass according to the terms of Colorado intestacy laws. The person who administers the estate is called the personal representative in Colorado; (some people use the term "executor").

Handling administration of the estate in a timely and effective manner -

At Wallace & Kling, P.C., we work with the personal representative to handle administration of the estate in a timely and effective manner, in compliance with Colorado law. This includes handling the initial filing of court papers, the required notices, inventories, accountings, payment of bills, filing of tax returns, distribution of assets, and closing of the estate. We handle certain tasks and our clients handle others, as mutually agreed, depending upon the individual case.

In other cases, we advise or represent heirs or beneficiaries who are challenging the current estate administration. Guardianships and conservatorships are also considered probate law issues, and both Nancy Wallace and Celeste Kling represent clients in these matters, as well as descendent's estates. Celeste also offers mediation services regarding probate administration, guardianship, and conservatorship issues.
