When an individual passes, it is left to loved ones to put together his or her assets, pay debtors and administer the estate. This can be an overwhelming task, made worse by the fact that emotions run high in the family. To avoid disputes and ensure that the process proceeds as smoothly as possible, it is important to work with a skilled estate attorney. If disputes do arise, an attorney can work to resolve the matter as efficiently as possible.
Protecting Your Family And The Estate In Administration And Litigation Matters
At Wessels Law Firm, we are experienced in all estate administration and estate litigation matters. If you have been named executor of an estate, our lawyers can assist in fiduciary duties and the administration of an estate or probate. We also provide representation to family members that fear an executor or trustee is acting in breach of fiduciary duties, or not in the best interests of the estate.
For more information on estate litigation and administration, as well as how we can protect your interests, please contact our firm today.
Our attorneys provide representation to families and individuals in all types of estate matters, including:
- Will contests — After the will has been read, members of the family may protest, claiming that the deceased was not in a proper mental state to make such decisions or that another person or family member had undue influence, manipulating the individual to take advantage of the will.
- Trust administration — Our firm provides representation to trustees and those with the responsibility of facilitating the trust. Our lawyers have handled all types of trust litigation, from claims of breach of fiduciary duty to a removal of an executor or trustee.
- Probate administration and litigation — Our firm assists executors in the administration of probate, protecting the estate and ensuring proper execution. Should disputes arise, we are available to handle all types of probate litigation.
Our firm routinely represents families and executors dealing with out-of-state issues, concerned about probate and estate matters in remote states.
