Probate Litigation Attorney in Jacksonville, FL
Helping You Resolve Disputes & Complications During Probate
When a family member or loved one passes away, numerous complications can
arise. Matters such as the division and
valuation of assets, for example, can pose serious worries. Through a process known as
probate, the deceased person’s assets will be distributed among family members
and debts will be paid by the deceased person’s estate. However,
the probate process can become quite contentious when disputes arise.
In some cases, allegations of undue influence, breach of fiduciary duty,
or lack of mental capacity will present issues. When family members battle
for the deceased person’s assets or finances, it would be wise to
contact a Jacksonville probate lawyer with the appropriate negotiation
and courtroom skills to determine how an estate should be distributed,
assess your options, and effectively guide you through the process.
If you need help resolving a probate-related dispute,
