Estate Litigation

Handling Pretrial, Trial, Appellate, and Mediation Proceedings Concerning Significant Estates

Ensuring the proper distribution of a large estate is a complex and time-consuming process. Often, there are disagreements concerning distribution of property and the true intentions of the deceased. Perhaps you are entitled to part of the estate, or a larger share of the estate, but have been denied your fair share.

Probate is the legal process by which a person’s debts are paid and assets are distributed upon her or his death. Lawyers refer to the entity that owns the deceased’s assets until those assets are distributed as an “estate.” When litigation or the threat of litigation occurs during the estate distribution process, turn to the lawyers at Sacks, Glazier, Franklin & Lodise .
