Wills and estates are a hotbed of litigation, especially if an estate was poorly planned or not planned at all. In addition, emotions are often running high, as several key players, including the Estate Trustees and beneficiaries, are dealing with the loss of a loved one.
The potential for disagreement exists on many fronts, including the validity of the Will itself, the conduct of the Estate Trustees during probate, and the interpretation of the deceased’s wishes. Particularly in estates involving complex issues such as the division of a business, high-value assets, or trusts, disputes can arise in a number of ways.
In order to resolve matters quickly so the estate can be distributed and settled, it is important to secure the advice of a skilled lawyer.
