Probate and Estate Administration
Winding Up the Affairs of Your Loved Ones
If you have been named executor, administrator or personal representative of the estate of a loved one, or are the surviving spouse or adult child of someone who has passed away, an experienced lawyer can help you efficiently complete the probate process and settle the estate. Probate can be complicated. An attorney who knows the laws and procedures, one who has helped others in similar circumstances, can keep the process on track and moving toward settling the estate.
At the Law Offices of Naiman & Naiman, P.A., in Baltimore, Maryland, we have provided comprehensive counsel to individuals and families in probate matters for nearly a quarter of a century. We built our practice on a commitment to personal service, providing sound legal advice in a friendly and comfortable setting. We take care of the details for you so that you can focus on the big picture.
