The Strickler Brennan Catlin legal team understands that dealing with the probate process can be complex and emotionally challenging, especially when disputes arise among family members or beneficiaries. Our experienced probate litigation attorneys help you navigate these difficult situations and protect your rights through effective legal representation and personalized guidance.
What is Probate Litigation?
Probate litigation encompasses legal disputes that arise during the administration of a decedent’s estate. It involves contested matters such as will contests, disputes over asset distribution, claims of undue influence or fraud, challenges to executor or trustee actions, and more. These disputes can strain relationships, create uncertainty, and delay the resolution of the estate. Having a skilled probate litigation attorney is crucial to protect your rights and interests.
At SBC, we approach probate litigation with a deep understanding of the sensitive nature of these disputes. We prioritize open communication with our clients, ensuring that we listen attentively to their concerns, explain legal concepts clearly, and outline the available options. Our compassionate attorneys recognize the emotional toll probate litigation can have on families, and we strive to minimize conflict while pursuing favorable outcomes.
Will Contests: We represent clients who wish to challenge the validity of a will based on issues such as lack of capacity, undue influence, fraud, or improper execution. Conversely, we also assist clients in defending the validity of a will against unfounded challenges.
Trust Disputes: If conflicts arise regarding the administration or distribution of assets held in a trust, our skilled attorneys can help resolve disputes through negotiation, mediation, or, if necessary, litigation.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty: We represent beneficiaries and interested parties in cases where executors, administrators, trustees, or other fiduciaries fail to act in the best interests of the estate or trust.
Asset Distribution Disputes: If you believe that the distribution of assets from an estate or trust is unfair or not in accordance with the decedent’s intentions, we can advocate for your rights and seek a just resolution.
Guardianship and Conservatorship Disputes: Our attorneys assist clients in resolving conflicts related to the appointment, removal, or actions of guardians or conservators, ensuring the best interests of the protected individual are upheld.
