If the deceased had a will, the will names someone to serve as Executor or Personal Representative. If that person is not available, or when someone dies without a will, the probate court will appoint the personal representative.

The court prefers using family members or close friends as Personal Representatives. If family members are not available, for example if they live in a different state, they may ask the court to appoint a private fiduciary with whom they are comfortable.

If you need a competent and experienced executor, you may ask the court to appoint Kurt Tittelbach, Arizona Licensed Fiduciary to serve as Personal Representative.

The duties of the Personal Representative can be very complex and time consuming. Selecting Kurt Tittelbach as fiduciary assures your family that the affairs of the deceased are handled with compassion and integrity and in an efficient and timely manner.
