Resolving Will Contests And Estate Disputes In Court
Estate litigation results when parties ask the courts to decide the issue in dispute. Examples include will contests, or questions about the validity of a will, the meaning of language in a will or trust, sale of real estate, mishandling of assets and other issues involving the estate. Wrongful death claims often require litigation by the executor or administrator when the deceased died as a result of negligence or wrongful act of another.
Grief Can Lead To Legal Conflict
Unfortunately, estate disputes often occur during the emotional time after a death in the family. Grief, uncertainty, old animosities and other emotions can combine to cause a fight over assets.
At Ferris & Eakin, we often work with the family to resolve these disputes without the stress, resentment and costs of litigation. If the parties cannot agree on a resolution, we have extensive experience with using the litigation process to seek a solution from the courts.
