Our Estate Litigation Practice

We handle all types of lawsuits involving the distribution of assets of an estate. Specifically, we represent parties in:

  • Will contests. We litigate all types of issues regarding the validity of wills or the distribution of assets under a will, including whether the deceased was of sound mind when the will was executed, disputes when the intentions of the deceased are uncertain, and questions over valuation of assets.
  • Disputes over who should be administrator of an estate. If no will exists, parties often argue over who should be given responsibility for settling the estate.
  • Claims involving allegations that money or property was taken prematurely.

Our Surrogate Court Practice

If you have been named as executor, administrator or personal representative of the estate of a loved one, we will help you satisfy the requirements of the probate court and successfully settle the estate. We will prepare and file all the necessary documents to initiate the probate process, as well as any responses required by the probate court. When required we will help you prepare and file an accounting of the assets of the estate, obtain property appraisals when necessary, make certain all final debts and tax obligations are satisfied (including the preparation and filing of federal and state estate tax returns), and oversee the orderly distribution of assets according to the terms of the will or law.
