Houston Probate Litigation Attorneys
Effective Solutions for Complex Disputes
No matter how legally airtight things appear in a will or probate matter, it is important to remember that disputes can arise from any corner of the family or financial instruments used for estate preservation. A family member can come forward and claim to be a rightful beneficiary. An estate holder can die without leaving an updated will-leaving the probate judge to make unfavorable decisions. Trustees of family estates may fail in their fiduciary responsibility to gather assets or distribute them according to the terms of the trust.
Here's how you distinguish between the types of legal action you'll need to take:
- Will Contests:
- Was the will executed under undue influence?
- Did the person have the appropriate mental capacity to execute the will?
- Fiduciary Litigation:
- Did the corporate trustee cover financial bases upon the death of the estate holder?
