When an estate is settled, a will can provide valuable direction to family members and allow for the distribution of assets. It can also form the basis of a conflict capable of turning into a legal battle. Many such conflicts call for the guidance of a qualified attorney.
If you are the subject of litigation regarding a will or you are concerned about a potential lawsuit — or if you believe you are being treated unfairly in the administration of an estate — talk to a lawyer with the estate litigation experience required to represent you in protecting your interests.
