After the death of a loved one, you may be tasked with disbursing his or her assets among family or friends.

Choosing the right firm
Choosing a probate law firm is not an easy task, especially as doing so almost always happens during a time of devastating loss. Attorney Cormac McEnery understands how confusing and upsetting the death of a loved one can be, and he works with you to prepare the documents required by the court. He can also advise you on the necessary steps throughout the probate process.
Cormac McEnery has practiced probate law in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Westchester County since his admittance in 1979. His experience is an asset to the personal representative of an estate who may rely on his probate experience to complete the process in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
Accounting for assets
In addition to the initial probate filings required, the personal representative of an estate must account for all of the assets of the estate and in some cases prepare a report of those assets to the court. An experienced probate law firm may be necessary to help you identify, locate, and estimate the value of your loved one's assets.
Eventually the court will approve all of your paperwork and allow you to begin distributing assets from the estate to the beneficiaries. The process of distributing the assets requires significant accounting of who receives what asset.
The probate law firm of Cormac McEnery is able to prepare the correct releases and receipts for the property to best protect the personal representative and to ensure the wishes of your loved one are followed.
Estate tax returns
Not long after the court procedures are completed, the personal representative must prepare an estate tax return for the federal and state governments. The return being filed can have significant ramifications on the estate if done incorrectly. Cormac McEnery will prepare the return on your behalf and hold assets in the estate to ensure proper payment of the taxes.
