Probate Litigation

Probate Litigation Lawyers in Los Angeles

Handling Pretrial, Trial, Appellate, and Mediation Proceedings Regarding Substantial Estates

While many probate matters flow smoothly through the court system, some generate disputes resulting in litigation. This can be especially true when large sums of money and property are involved. When a probate case turns into a disputed matter, the skilled probate litigation attorneys at Sacks, Glazier, Franklin & Lodise can handle the complex legal issues.

Probate is the legal process by which a person's debts are paid and assets are distributed upon his or her death. The entity that holds the assets until they are distributed to beneficiaries is referred to as an "estate." When the probate process becomes derailed by disputes over how an estate will be distributed, contact the law firm of Sacks, Glazier, Franklin & Lodise LLP in Los Angeles, California, for experienced advocacy and legal counsel.
