Probate Litigation

Probate litigation, such as a will contest or dispute regarding an estate, involves disagreements that usually take place in the context of great emotional stress, like the death or incapacity of a loved one. It is difficult enough to deal with a family disagreement over complex legal matters. It is even harder when the family is grieving or otherwise in crisis. However, if a family is arguing over a decedent’s estate, a trust, or a guardianship and cannot resolve the matter, litigation may be the only approach to take. At such a time, the right probate attorney is needed.
