The probate process can be extremely complex and involve various strategies depending on whether there was a will, if the will named an executor, and when the will is being probated after the death of the testator. Whether you were named an executor, administrator, or you are an heir interested in the probate process, we can provide you with the information you need regarding the probate process and your rights.
Estate and will contests
A will contest may arise when it is believed that the will was created with undue influence from an outside party or by force or duress. A will may also be contested if it was revoked or if there was a lack of capacity to create the will. Our attorneys will begin an investigation of the validity of the will and defend its validity or challenge a will on your behalf.
Breach of fiduciary duty
Any administrator, executor, or trustee has a fiduciary obligation to the estate. They must exercise utmost good faith, loyalty and fair dealing. This means putting the needs of the beneficiary above one's own needs. In addition to will contests and probate, we are also experienced in handling claims against trustees for breach of fiduciary duty. We have experience in handling cases of theft by an administrator, executor, as well as mishandling by a trustee. If you are seeking to file a claim against a trustee for failing to properly manage a trust or you are defending yourself against trustee liability, please contact us. We will begin an immediate investigation into your case to protect your rights.
