One rarely dreams that family disagreements or high emotions stemming from the loss of loved ones will erupt into lawsuits. Unfortunately, all too often families find themselves standing in a courtroom seeking judicial intervention in the administration of an estate. Some cases involve an executor, personal representative, trustee or other fiduciary who is not properly administering the estate. Other cases include an heir, devisee or beneficiary who wants more than provided in the estate plan. In any case, proper legal representation requires in depth understanding of probate laws and procedure as well as seasoned and successful courtroom experience.
