Legal Representative Law and Legal Definition

Legal representative is defined as "the administrator or executor of the estate of the deceased individual. However, it may also include an individual, institution or organization acting on behalf of an unadministered estate, provided that such person can give the Administration good acquittance," i.e., "payment to that person will release the Administration from further liability for such payment." Cunningham v. Astrue, 2010 U.S. App. LEXIS 193 (6th Cir. Ohio 2010)
