Probate Law

When people think of lawyers they often think of the characters in dramatic courtroom scenes from the movies or a television series, such as LA Law or The Practice. Historically, the Estate Planning practice area has not been so dramatic. Therefore it is not often an Estate Planning attorney is portrayed in the movies or on television. Estate Planning, in comparison to other practice areas, has typically been a relatively smooth and non-litigious area of the law involving, among other things, the transition of assets from one generation to the next.

However, smooth transitions are becoming less common around the country and probate litigation is on the rise. Probate litigation is a very sensitive area of law because it often involves disputes between family members. Often, disputes center on:

  • Will and trust contests issues
  • Inheritance disputes
  • Disappearance of assets
  • Contested transfers, gifts and bequests by a deceased person before death
  • Guardianship disputes
  • Claims of incompetency and undue influence
  • Claims of fraud, duress, or negligence in estate administration
  • Breach of fiduciary duty in management of a trust

If you have questions about your rights pertaining to any of the above issues or others in the probate process, getting the help you need from an experienced professional is the best way to assure your peace of mind.
