Probate Litigation

Are You Involved In a Contested Will Dispute? Call Us.

The death of a parent or other family member is an emotional time for everyone in the family. Unfortunately, when estate assets are involved, the emotional turmoil often creates disputes among family members and heirs. Sometimes, the contested will creates problems that can last months and years, finally ending up in court. Often, however, the right mediation lawyer can help resolve the dispute fairly, helping everyone come to grips with the estate holder's final wishes.
