Geller Law Group Attorney Julie Swerbinsky Speaks to CNBC About Estate Planning

Here’s how to settle your loved one’s estate after they pass away

GLG Senior Associate Julie Swerbinksy was recently interviewed for and quoted in an article by CNBC host Stephanie Dhue, “Here’s how to settle your loved one’s estate after they pass away.

Excerpt from article:

Experts say a simple estate with only a few assets that are easy to find may be settled in six months. However, a more complicated financial situation may take several years to resolve. 

Executors, often family members, should understand that fulfilling their loved one’s wishes can be like taking on a second-job, some experts say. In addition to dealing with grief, “a lot of clients jump in without talking with someone and understanding the roles, the responsibilities,” said Julie Swerbinsky, an attorney with the Geller Law Group in Fairfax, Virginia. “Just take a deep breath, call someone when you have been able to digest it a little bit.” 

Julie focuses her practice on estate planning, probate administration, trust administration, guardianships and conservatorships. She guides clients through all aspects of the probate process, taking the time to ensure her clients understand each step of the way. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from administering insolvent estates to multimillion-dollar probate estates. Julie also assists clients in need of setting up a guardianship or conservatorship for their loved ones, and the filings and administration that follows.
