Probate Administration & Litigation

From simple probate administration to extensive litigation in cases where serious disagreements arise, the probate attorneys at Morton & Gettys in Rock Hill stand ready to assist clients during difficult times.

In most instances when someone passes away in South Carolina and owns real property and/or other assets, the family must probate the estate.  This is true even if a last Will and Testament is written, though the existence of a Will does make probate easier and less expensive.

At Morton & Gettys, the probate attorneys regularly aid family members or friends who have lost a loved one. From opening the estate to the final reconciliation, these professionals keep the process on track and take stress away from grieving family members.

Our attorneys often serve as estate administrators, too, helping personal representatives through probate proceedings. Our lawyers also serve as personal representatives in cases where families want a neutral party in that role.

Sometimes, though, the best efforts of everyone involved cannot result in resolution. In those situations, the Morton & Gettys probate attorneys also are experienced litigators who have represented clients in cases involving multi-million-dollar estates. We have probated complex issues involving debt restructuring and rental properties and represented clients in contested Wills.
