When an estate goes to probate, there can be an extraordinary level of complex detail that must be sorted through. In more than thirty years of practicing estate law in Maryland, Baltimore estate administration attorney Jim Walsh has built a reputation as an exacting and caring probate and estate administration lawyer.
If you are the personal representative of an estate, our estate administration law firm can explain the probate process, guide you through your responsibilities, and assure that all requirements are met.
