It is an emotional time when someone close to you has died. It can be even more difficult when your family faces a dispute involving the will, trust or estate. In some cases, a creditor will bring a claim against the estate for payment. In other cases, a family member may contest the validity of the will. And in many instances, a beneficiary may feel the trustee has violated a fiduciary duty.
Regardless of the position you are in, Ganim Legal, P.C., is here to help.
During your initial consultation, Attorney Paul Ganim will review your legal circumstances and advise on the best options for moving forward with your probate dispute. Our entire team will work diligently to resolve your legal matter fairly and in accordance with the law, while at the same time protecting your rights. While mediation can often be the best method for obtaining favorable results, we are always prepared to bring your case to trial if an alternative agreement cannot be reached.
Our lawyers handle a wide range of probate litigation matters, including those involving:
- Claims against the estate
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Will contests
- Trust litigation
