Probate And Administration Of Estates
An estate must go through the legal process of probate, which determines the validity of a will or any other estate planning documents, and how the estate is to be distributed. Probate often takes some time and can be confusing to those who are unfamiliar with the process. Our firm is dedicated to keeping you informed throughout the probate process, and supporting the proper distribution of estate assets upon the completion of probate.
Will Contests And Trust Disputes
In some instances, there may be challenges made to the estate. These will contests and trust disputes often come from creditors or other family members who challenge the proposed distribution of the estate. If you are attempting to defend an estate against a dispute or you are looking to challenge an estate, our lawyers can provide you with the representation you need.
