Probate Litigation Lawyer

When someone dies, their loved ones are left to both grieve and deal with their belongings.

In the best cases, the person organized all of their assets and property in a detailed estate plan. Sometimes, however, the person failed to organize a will or failed to finish the details in their will or trust before they died.

In these cases, their assets are subject to probate, which can be a long and complicated process for the family left behind.

Our team at The Ayers Law Firm is experienced in probate litigation cases and is ready to help you and your family get through this process as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

What is probate?

Probate is the judicial process when the court takes over distributing the estate of a deceased person who failed to outline their wishes in a will or trust.

Whether the person had a will and some of their assets were not included or had no will whatsoever, the court will direct which state assets will go to family members, beneficiaries, heirs, charities, etc.

Some typical examples of assets include:

  • Property
  • Vehicles
  • Furniture
  • Cash
  • Investments and Stock
  • Patents
  • Property
  • Vehicles
  • Furniture
  • Cash
  • Investments and Stock
  • Patents

  • Contested guardianship
  • Trustee removals
  • Determination of heirs
  • Challenges to jointly owned properties
  • Breach of fiduciary duty

Even if there are no disputes, having an experienced lawyer on your side ensures you and your family follow your loved one’s wishes and receive all the assets you were meant to receive.
