Estate Administration

We represent the personal representative (executor of a will, or administrator appointed in the absence of a will). It is not a complicated process, but it can be time-consuming. A lawyer can help protect the fiduciary from claims of impropriety and speed up the probate process:

  • Filing the paperwork to open the estate
  • Probating a will through the Register of Wills
  • Marshaling and managing assets
  • Paying debts to creditors
  • Liquidating or re-titling assets
  • Distributing proceeds to beneficiaries of a will or trust
  • Filing Pennsylvania inheritance tax and federal income tax returns

Mr. Meyer also represents personal representatives in estate litigation against allegations of incompetence, fraud, or theft.


Cantor & Meyer, P.C. represents concerned family members in petitioning the Orphans’ Court (probate court) for appointment of a guardian to make medical and financial decisions for an incapacitated parent. Mr. Meyer can help arrange psychiatric exams to substantiate whether someone is competent. He also can serve as co-guardian if there are no local relatives able to serve, and advise the family on developments.
