When an individual dies, his or her estate needs to be gathered, managed and distributed according to the dictates of his or her estate plan. Estate administration involves collecting the assets of the estate, paying the decedent’s debts and distributing the assets that remain in the estate.
Our lawyers guide personal representatives and trustees through the administration of decedents’ estates and the implementation of decedents’ estate plans, including appearing in probate court proceedings, supervising the administration of trusts, assisting with the transfer of assets and helping to resolve claims.
When administering a decedent’s estate, conflicts such as will contests, trust contests and property disputes frequently arise. Estate litigation is often centered on issues of undue influence, competency or dissatisfaction with the contents of the decedent’s will or trust. These disputes frequently turn into costly, time-consuming and stressful court battles that intensify the pain associated with losing a loved one.
The attorneys at Wright & Kirschbraun are highly experienced estate litigation lawyers who understand what you are going through. We will evaluate and pursue all appropriate avenues of out-of-court settlement while steadfastly preparing to represent your interests at trial.
