Will Contests, Probate and Trust Disputes

Losing a loved one is almost always challenging and often emotionally charged. The intricacies of legal matters can add a layer of complexity to an already delicate situation. Oftentimes disputes arise concerning issues relating to the will, probate, or trust at issue when a loved one passes. Having the right legal representation is key to navigating these disputes through litigation and possibly trial.


If you are stuck in a will contest or other type of probate or trust dispute, you need an experienced litigator who will fight to protect your interests and secure a favorable resolution.

Probate and Trust Administration

Probate administration is a formal process that takes place after an individual passes away. It involves the verification of his or her will and the distribution of his or her assets. Probate occurs in a probate court, which oversees the process to guarantee its legality and fairness. However, for this same reason, probate can be time consuming and costly.


Alternatively, if one’s assets are in a trust when he or she passes away, the administration of the trust is an informal process that happens outside of the court system. Trust administration offers privacy, the ability to side-step the court system and its inefficiencies and can be less costly.


Whether you choose to have your estate passed through probate administration or trust administration, either procedure will be necessary to ensure your debts and taxes are settled and your final wishes are respected.


Estate Planning

Understanding estate planning can be a real headache, whether you are looking to keep your family secure or handle a large estate. Getting it right is crucial. Every year, families find themselves in challenging situations. They believe they have protected their money and property well, only to face surprise legal troubles when it is time to settle their affairs. Without proper legal advice, you risk financial loss and the worry of knowing your loved ones may not be taken care of.


Likewise, unplanned medical situations can make someone lose a significant amount of money if they have not arranged for a power of attorney. These situations can also create tough choices like skipping life-saving medical treatment you would normally want or receiving medical care you would normally reject. Estate planning is not just about passing on belongings to the next generation, but it also lets you solve matters now for a better future quality of life.
