In Massachusetts, personal representative is the term that has replaced executors and administrators. The appointed personal representative’s responsibilities include making sure the deceased parties’ claims and obligations are fulfilled. This office specializes in representing the person executing the will, administering the estate and acting as a personal representative.
In some instances a member of our office has been appointed as the personal representative. This allows a neutral party to execute the will, lessening the tension between sometimes feuding relatives.
Help us help you through this difficult time. Stop by our Walpole office or give us a call if you have questions or concerns regarding executors and administrators.
