Embroiled in Probate Litigation?

Our Long Island Lawyers Can Help

Probate, the process of settling a deceased's estate and reviewing the legal validity of a will, is a sensitive procedure, often with numerous individuals looking to assert their own best interests. It is no surprise, then, that probate is regularly challenged by heirs and complicated by unforeseen issues. When this happens, probate essentially moves into a trial phase called probate litigation. Here, executors, heirs, creditors, and various other parties can state their case to a probate judge and seek amendments to whatever decisions a will dictates.

Probate litigation can be an overwhelming process. There are many matters that need to be sorted and sometimes an intimidating number of parties are involved, all who all believe they have some claim to an estate. This is why it is essential that executors and heirs seek proper representation through this process. At The Law Office of Michael J. Brescia, P.C., our legal team has made our mission to emphatically represent those entangled in probate litigation and ensure that their voices are heard.

Grounds for Probate Litigation

Not every probate issue or dispute is grounds for litigation. Hopefully, any complication that arises can be settled with further clarification by the will or a judge's interpretation. However, if there is a serious dispute, litigation will likely take place and representation is called for.

Common reasons for probate litigation include:

  • Accounting challenges
  • Removal of fiduciary
  • Wrongful death suits
  • Creditor claims
  • Spousal entitlements
