Not every will or estate may need the support of legal counsel. However, lawsuits that occur because of estate distribution issues and other circumstances may benefit from gaining an experienced probate litigation attorney. As explained in one of our earlier blogs, Probate litigation is the court process by which individuals seek to address a perceived wrong or other direction from the court concerning a loved one’s will or trust. Probate litigation hearings and trials typically occur in county probate court where the individual has passed, or any county in which the trust is being administered. It is in your best interest to retain a lawyer who will aggressively work on your behalf when dealing with issues such as defective Trusts and Wills, tortious interference with expectation of your inheritance, undue influence, lack of capacity, contested accountings, spousal rights and omitted spouses.
There is never a bad time to learn about your rights regardless of where you are in the probate proceedings. Having a strong advocate on your side of the courtroom can make the difference between a successful lawsuit or denial of your claim. Trust and estate litigation requires skilled and experienced counsel that can understand and appreciate both the intricate and often complex legal and financial issues involved as well as the delicate and often emotional nature of these cases. The right representation will speed up the legal process and prevent you from making costly errors.
