What is Probate?

Probate is the process of distributing property and assets according to the terms of a will. While this process is often a simple matter when there is a valid will, disputes can arise among beneficiaries and other relatives.

Our firm commonly handles probate disputes involving the following claims:

  • The will was not executed properly.
  • The will's creator did not have the capacity to write a will or make significant changes to the will.
  • The will's creator was under the influence of a family member to change or add a beneficiary to the will.
  • The executor did not have the capacity to properly execute a will.
  • The will failed to include a close family member as a beneficiary.

We welcome all clients whose family member died testate (with a will). We can assist with all estate administration issues, from the initial inventory of all the assets to the final distribution. We will review your situation, and if necessary, represent your interests in the Surrogates Court.
