If you need assistance with probate, you can rely on our experience and skill. Perhaps you are an executor or trustee; we can guide you through the probate or estate administration process. We also represent heirs and beneficiaries who are contesting the will. We remain sympathetic, but practical, about probate and will work efficiently to resolve issues that arise.

Your Advocate In Litigation And Appeals

Our litigation and appeals practice involves cases that come out of probate, trusts and guardianship matters. With our extensive probate experience, we can get to the cause of the problem quickly and provide solutions for resolving it. We also provide representation in contract disputes and real estate contract litigation. The approach we take is to thoroughly evaluate the situation, determine what is in dispute and establish a vision for where we want the case to go.

Our appellate work typically arises from litigation we are handling. We represent individuals who either need to contest or defend the court’s ruling in their case. We are thoroughly prepared for appeals and have the distinct experience necessary in this area of law. Most attorneys do not do appellate work, and it is critical to retain an attorney who has this experience.
