Probate Overview


Knowledgeable Brooklyn Probate Attorney

An experienced estate administration attorney eases the stress of losing a loved one

Losing a family member is a heartbreaking experience. When family members are in mourning, it can be difficult to focus on the financial aspects of your loved one’s passing. Dealing with the probate process is often frustrating and even overwhelming when you are grieving for the loss of someone you love.

At the Law Offices of Peter G. Gray, P.C., I provide sensitive and thorough support for family members, beneficiaries and executors throughout the estate administration process. As a highly skilled estate administration attorney in Brooklyn, I guide you through probate to ensure your loved one’s will is appropriately handled in court. Using the knowledge and skill I have gained over 25 years of practicing law, I focus on providing legal guidance so you can focus on dealing with your loss.

Estate administration and probate

Probate is the legal process through which an estate is administered after someone dies. It ensures the correct property passes to the proper beneficiaries as dictated by the will. A Brooklyn wills lawyer guides you and your family through each step of the complex probate process:

  • Proving the deceased person’s will is valid
  • Identifying property distributed in the will
  • Appraising property
  • Paying debts and taxes from the estate
  • Distributing property according to the terms of the will
  • Transferring title and ownership of assets to the proper beneficiaries

Probate can be complicated, but an experienced Brooklyn probate attorney helps you minimize the stress and hardship by offering comprehensive guidance from start to finish.

The probate administration process can be highly complex and frustrating, especially if you are a family member without experience as an executor. Knowledgeable probate attorneys in Brooklyn like me can guide you through the administration process, including the procedural requirements of probate and Brooklyn Surrogate’s Court litigation.

-C.W. ★★★★★ Review From Google

Mr. Gray saved the day! I recently hired Peter Gray to overturn a fraudulent deed that was filed against my property in Brooklyn. He swiftly filed all of the necessary documents in supreme court, argued my case and WON. Fraudulent deed overturned and the thief that filed the deed is now in jail.
