From business matters to personal legal issues.
The majority of estates sail smoothly through probate, but occasionally disputes arise. Heirs will disagree about how to interpret a Will’s provisions. A relative who did not receive an expected inheritance will challenge the deceased’s mental capacity when the will is executed. A party will accuse a personal representative of misconduct.
In these cases, and in many other situations, the probate litigation attorneys at Morton & Gettys stand ready to help. We represent named beneficiaries, charities, and other affected parties in a range of probate cases. We also counsel personal representatives in disputes over interpretation of Wills.
Though our veteran lawyers have the experience to present the case in probate court if necessary, we also are skilled at helping parties reach mutually agreeable resolutions. Our attorneys have worked with thousands of clients over the course of their careers, a depth of experience which allows them to develop some insight into family dynamics. Often the lawyers are able to craft a solution that saves families from suffering the financial and emotional consequences of protracted litigation.
Regardless of the reasons for the estate winding up in court, whether it is the absence of a Will or challenging a Will, the attorneys at Morton & Gettys are fully prepared to fight for the best possible resolution for you.
