Probate & Estate Litigation

Harrisburg Probate Litigation Attorneys

Probate is the formal process of distributing assets to beneficiaries of the deceased. At Purcell, Krug & Haller, in Harrisburg and Hershey, we understand losing a loved one is a difficult experience. Our assistance and guidance throughout the probate legal process will allow you to focus on the grieving and healing process.

Helping you, helping your family

During the probate process, PK&H can thoroughly address the estate's legal issues, and walk you through the various stages of estate administration. If you have been named an executor of a will, you have certain responsibilities. These duties include formally probating the original will, notifying beneficiaries, determining the estate assets and date of death values, paying the decedent's and estate's debts and distributing the property and assets as the decedent directed. If the person died without a will, but owned assets, we can assist in having an administrator appointed to carry out the same duties as an executor. We can also handle estate and inheritance tax return issues that may arise.
