BANK TRUST DEPARTMENTS
& TRUST COMPANIES

Experience You Can Count On.

In my thirty plus years of experience as an attorney, I have been hired by numerous bank trust departments and trust companies which have been nominated to serve either as the successor corporate trustee for a trust or as the executor of a decedent’s probate estate.

At The Cornett Law Firm, I understand that many trust officers are attorneys who are experienced with the post-mortem probate process and the post-mortem trust administration process but who nevertheless need an attorney to represent their bank or trust company. I will be there to:

  • explain how the probate process works in Arkansas (if the trust officer does not already know), the time frame which the beneficiaries and the bank (the executor) can expect before the process is concluded (again, if the trust officer does not already know), and serve as your bank’s or trust company’s attorney during the entire probate process from start to finish, including the preparation of the legal notice and all necessary petitions, waivers, motions, orders, etc., and to schedule and attend all hearings before the court, and lastly, prepare all necessary transfer documents at the conclusion of the probate process; or
  • explain how the post-mortem trust administration process works in Arkansas (if the decedent had a funded revocable living trust and if the trust officer does not already know), the time frame which the beneficiaries and the bank or trust company (the successor corporate trustee) can expect before the process is concluded (again, if the trust officer does not already know), and serve as your bank’s or trust company’s attorney during the entire post-mortem trust process, including the preparation of the two legal notices which the Arkansas Trust Code mandates, the preparation of waiver forms, explain the requirements of the Trustee Report, and lastly, prepare any necessary transfer documents (such as deeds) at the conclusion of the post-mortem trust administration process.
