Estate Litigation

Many people ask if they need a will. The answer is yes! If you want to make sure that your property goes to the right people or if you want to simplify the process for your heirs then a will is a necessity. However, wills are not always foolproof. This is where our firm gets involved.

It is important to keep in mind that our firm does not do any estate planning. Our role in handling wills is to defend them from a contest or to represent the contestants themselves or to construe the meaning of the will after it has been probated.

There are other areas of estate litigation besides a will contest that our firm handles including:

  • Demands for an accounting
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims against executors and administrators
  • Removal of executors and administrators
  • Heirship determinations
