Probate Litigation

Do you need probate litigation?

The death or incapacity of a loved one can trigger a wide range of emotions including sadness, fear, and anger. Unfortunately, for some, it can also bring feelings of greed, jealousy, entitlement, and even hatred between surviving family members when there is disagreement regarding the terms or validity of wills, trusts, funeral planning, burial, and other end-of-life matters. Attempting to settle these disputes can too often ruin family relationships beyond repair. Gendelman Klimas is here to help get you and your family through contested probate matters as amicably as possible, while reducing familial conflict.
