Probate
Experienced Maryland trusts and estates attorney helps guide you through the process
Probate follows what is typically a painful emotional loss. Richard T. Stansbury is a knowledgeable, meticulous probate lawyer with more than 35 years of experience in probate law and knows how to ease the stress of probate by guiding executors and beneficiaries through the complex process.

The process of probate:
Most executors have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the process. We can guide you through all aspects of probate, including:

-Filing the will with the Maryland probate court
-Developing the best strategy for fairly and expeditiously probating the estate
-Finding and collecting assets
-Closing and opening bank accounts
-Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
-Paying estate taxes
-Valuing, managing, preserving and liquidating the estate
-Locating beneficiaries
-Hiring experts when appropriate

Valuing and managing the estate:
We assist executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. We have a team of experts available to assist in every aspect of estate probate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisors, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist with executor duties. We can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.

Probate disputes:
Even in apparently straightforward estate cases, there are sometimes disputes between beneficiaries. Richard T. Stansbury's professional courtroom presence can calm the emotionally-charged process of probating a challenged will or disputed executor or judicial decision. When it is in the best interests of our client to preserve cordial familial relationships, we are adept at mediating these disputes. When necessary, we assertively defend our client's beneficiary rights within the Maryland probate court.
