Will Contests

We have all heard stories of disagreements that sometimes occur between the relatives of a deceased person regarding the distribution of the estate. Frequently this leads to probate litigation between relatives creating distress and emotional wounds that may never heal between family members. Don't let this happen to you. Let a skilled and aggressive litigator help protect your family's rights and interests during this difficult time. We serve a variety of clients in matters such as defending the validity of a will, or alleging undue influence that deprived a beneficiary of rightful inheritance.

Marital Property Concerns

The heart of most family disputes over an estate involves ownership or control of assets or debt. While real estate or financial accounts acquired during marriage are subject to equitable distribution in a divorce, inherited property is typically not considered marital property. Complications can arise, especially if a spouse dies during a divorce proceeding. Our broad spectrum of legal experience provides us with valuable insight into ideal ways to help you protect your interests during a difficult, emotionally charged time for your family.
