Experienced Litigation Of Wills And Estates
The death of a loved one does not always bring the family closer together. Sometimes there are disagreements about the person’s wishes or a question as to the assets of the deceased. There are also outside threats such as creditors demanding a piece of the estate.

We represent executors and personal representatives who are charged with administering the assets as well as family members who need legal counsel to protect their inheritance rights.
