Ensuring Probate and Other Legal Processes Run Efficiently

Probate follows what is for most families a painful and emotional loss of a loved one. Probating an estate can be intimidating and can create legal risk for individuals who are not familiar with the process.

Intestate Estates

When a decedent dies without a will there is more need than ever to have legal guidance during the probate process to ensure that heirs are appropriately identified and assets are properly distributed. 

Public Administration

A Public Administration is necessary when a decedent who resided in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts dies intestate with no known heirs. Attorney Michael Chernick is an appointed Public Administrator in Hampden County who has vast experience in locating assets and identifying heirs.
