Disputes Over Wealth Distribution
Probate refers to the court process of determining the distribution of wealth after someone dies. In many cases, a will does not need to go into probate, but when someone contests a will or if there was no will at all, the court needs to determine how the wealth is distributed. I can represent you if you are a beneficiary or an executor involved in a probate dispute.
I have the experience to represent your interests regarding:
- Will contests
- Asset distribution
- Breach of fiduciary duty claims against trustees
- Administrator accounting
- Keeping informed about trusts
Trustees And Executors
Being an executor or trustee is a demanding task. I can help you understand your rights and responsibilities, and help you fulfill your fiduciary duties regarding:
- Creditor claims
- Tax issues
- Property distribution
It is obviously much preferred to avoid probate altogether. In more than two decades of practice, I have learned that the most effective way of avoiding probate litigation is through intelligent estate planning. Through the proper will and trust documents, communication is clear and there is less room for dispute, simplifying the process for everyone involved.
