We Understand the Challenges of Probate Litigation

Because they often involve those who are closest to us, we understand the unique dynamics posed by probate litigation cases. Emotions can run high – someone may feel that they have been treated unfairly, or they may resent that you are disputing their claim. While your emotions may have no bearing on your legal claims, we understand that relationships are important. Probate litigation requires a certain sensitivity to these unique dynamics, and we defer to our clients in deciding how to proceed. 

Helping You Understand Your Options in the Probate Litigation Process

Probate litigation can be extremely difficult and time-consuming for the parties involved, not to mention emotionally draining. On top of all that, litigation can be quite expensive. Cases can drag on for months, or even years. Extensive discovery, motions, and hearings can cause costs and expenses to balloon quickly. With no guarantee that you will prevail, it can quickly start to feel like your case is a high-stakes gamble where the only option is to keep spending.  

At Niekamp, Weisensell, Mutersbaugh & Mastrantonio, LLP, we strive to provide our clients with cost-effective probate litigation representation. We work with you to ensure that you understand your options at every step:

  • We explain why certain steps are important or necessary and what the expected outcome will be.
  • We recommend settlement when we think it’s truly your best option, but promptly communicate any offers of settlement that we receive. We will help you understand the precise details of the offer and what you would be giving up if you accept it. 
  • We will keep you apprised of all developments in your case and provide regular updates as to its status. 
  • We will provide you with an estimate of what we think it will cost to litigate your case and provide itemized, detailed bills so that you can understand exactly what services have been rendered. 

Types of Cases We Handle

Probate litigation is a broad category of law that encompasses several different types of legal disputes. We handle the following types of probate cases:

  • Disputes involving the validity of the will or other estate planning documents
  • Disputes involving interpretation of the will or other estate documents
  • Suits alleging that the executor or the trustee have breached their duty to the beneficiaries
  • Disputes involving the appointment of a guardian or other agents of the estate
  • Lawsuits seeking to terminate or modify a trust agreement

Probate cases are complex and often very unique. No matter what kind of dispute you are involved in, you should at least speak with a probate litigation lawyer to see if legal counsel can help resolve it.
