Resolving Probate Disputes

We can also help you to contest a will that you believe does not express the true intent of a loved one. A will contest can successfully throw out a will that was done under undue influence or when the person was not competent.

We have experience challenging wills that are legally deficient, or fighting a will contest when a beneficiary is attempting to get more than they are entitled to under the will and challenges from beneficiaries who were disinherited. Our team of attorneys skillfully handles many types of estate disputes that arise during estate administration.


Sometimes a friend or loved one becomes unable to care for themselves due to age or illness. A guardianship is a way to protect the assets and health of someone who is unable to care for themselves. A guardianship is a way to intervene with the courts help to protect someone who is being financially exploited or who is not making sound health care decisions. We can guide you through the process to help you help those you care for.
