Your Responsibilities As A Personal Representative

In Colorado, a personal representative is nominated during the process of drafting a will. If you have been named the personal representative of your loved one’s estate, you have been given an important responsibility. Our attorneys understand Colorado estate and trust administration laws. We will provide advice and counsel as we assist you with your responsibilities as a personal representative, including:

  • Collecting the decedent’s assets
  • Paying debts and taxes
  • Distributing the remaining assets to the named beneficiaries

We also represent people who have a conflict with personal representatives. If you believe the personal representative is breaching his or her duties, we can help you bring an action against the personal representative.

Colorado Trust Administration Lawyers

Our lawyers handle the administration of both probate and non-probate assets, including assets held in trusts. We often represent individuals who have been named trustees to an estate. Trustees have many obligations to fulfill, including distributing assets to beneficiaries, maintaining accurate accounting logs and paying taxes on behalf of the estate.

Litigating Trust And Estate Administration

Our lawyers also handle any litigation that may arise during the course of estate and trust administration, including:

  • Will contests
  • Creditor claims
  • Breach of duty actions against personal representatives, trustees and others with fiduciary responsibility
