Our Probate Practice

We work with executors, administrators, personal representatives and heirs, helping you complete the requirements of the probate process, so that you can settle the estate of a loved one. We will assist you with the preparation and inventory of assets, the payment of final debts and taxes of the estate, and the orderly distribution of property according to the terms of the will. To learn more, see our probate page.

Our firm also handles probate and trust litigation. We represent parties in disputes arising during the probate process, including will contests alleging lack of capacity, duress or undue influence during the will drafting. Furthermore, we litigate breach of fiduciary duty claims involving probate estates and trusts.
