Navigating Probate Litigation

When an individual passes away, their estate goes through the probate process. Probate is the court-supervised division of the deceased's assets and property. When family members or loved ones disagree with the court ruling or direction of the will or executor, it can result in litigation.

Some of the main examples of probate litigation include the following:

  • Contesting documents due to incapacity, fraud, or believed threats
  • Contesting any actions taken by trustees or executors
  • Bringing forward actions to recover property
  • Actions due to elder abuse (can be handled in both civil and probate court)

We can provide legal counsel for matters involving trustee removal, accounting disputes or errors, financial abuse, fiduciary claims, and issues regarding the legitimacy of a will or trust. With so much on the line, such as inheritance and invaluable family heirlooms, it is imperative that you do not leave such matters up to chance. You need a skilled probate litigator on your side today!
