We have represented clients in every type of probate matter.
Connecticut Probate Courts have legal jurisdiction over many types of matters. The BoneeWeintraub partners have represented clients in every type of probate matter, including decedent’s estates, guardianships, conservatorships, parental rights termination, name changes, commitments, trust construction / accounting / administration, and will contests.
For over one hundred years, BoneeWeintraub and its predecessor firm have resolved matters in probate and assisted clients with the administration and settlement of their estates.
Whether your estate is $300,000 or $3,000,000, we have vast experience in shepherding it through all of Connecticut probate requirements from applying for probate, preparing an inventory, establishing probate bank accounts, paying creditors, preparing estate tax returns, and the final account.
These forms and processes present difficulties to clients at a challenging time in their lives. We are there to assist when needed to make the task easier for you whether you are the beneficiary, executor, administrator, trustee or guardian.
We also have extensive experience in the area of will contests and trust construction actions. Recently, we represented the surviving brother who was found to be a beneficiary of the deceased estate by a Connecticut Superior Court decision after an appeal from probate. The brother received $450,000.00.
For decades we have handled trust construction litigation from Superior Court to Connecticut’s Appellate Courts wherein a minor beneficiary who was adopted out of a wealthy family was declared to be included in a family trust fund worth in excess of $25,000,000.00.
