Brett Herbert has posted his article, The Role of the Commissioner of Accounts in Virginia Estate and Trust Administration. It begins as follows:
People typically picture the probate process going something like this: a person dies, you find their will, you take the will to the courthouse, the executor pays the debts, and then the executor distributes the assets.

One of these critical people is the Commissioner of Accounts.
