Probate Litigation

When a loved one dies those left behind expect the will of the deceased to express his or her final wishes regarding the distribution of assets. Unfortunately sometimes the will is unclear or those wishes are contested by family members or others such as creditors, beneficiaries, the IRS, or people who expected an inheritance or gift. This is when you need an attorney to help you with the litigation process in probate court. Probate litigation involves wills, trusts, guardianships and conservatorships. The probate court may determine the assets of the deceased and specify how taxes and debts will be paid and provide for the distribution of assets among the heirs. If you have reason to contest a will or need representation when someone challenges the will of your loved one, I can help you in the probate litigation process.
