Probate And Estate Litigation
Even the most close-knit families can run into serious disagreements after the death of a loved one. If you have become involved in a probate dispute, you may feel confused about the legal process you are now facing. We can help you sort through the important issues.
Probate is the legal process through which wills are validated and assets are distributed. Disputes in this process can arise for a number of important reasons, including claims of undue influence on the deceased and disagreements over appointed guardians or conservators.
