Probate Mediation and Litigation

Probate Estate Litigation Lawyers Serving The New Jersey And New York City Areas

Even in cases involving comprehensive estate planning, conflicts often arise regarding the orderly distribution of a deceased’s estate. Heirs may challenge the valuation of property distributed through the estate. The will or trust itself may be challenged, with allegations that the document does not meet legal requirements, or that required formalities were not followed. A will or trust may also be contested based on allegations of undue influence or incompetence.

Representing Beneficiaries And Heirs, Executors And Administrators

If you are a beneficiary or heir to an estate and believe that you have been wrongfully denied a distribution under the estate, or that the estate has not properly valued your distribution, or that the will or trust was executed under conditions indicating undue influence, duress, or lack of competency, you are urged to contact an experienced probate litigation attorney. If you are the executor or administrator of an estate and have been sued in a will contest or concerned you might be sued, we can help.
