A Full-Service Law Firm, Putting Clients First Since 1953

Hazleton Probate Litigation Lawyer

It is not uncommon for problems to arise during the process of settling an estate. When the problems involve cooperative parties (such as siblings who stay focused on the common good), these challenges may be resolved through negotiations and legal maneuvers.

On the other hand, sometimes the parties involved do not reach agreements. They become legal opponents headed for disputes or litigation such as:

  • Will contests
    • Claims that the deceased person was under duress or under undue influence when writing or signing a will
    • Disputes between a new spouse and children from a previous marriage, for example
  • Trust-related disputes
    • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
    • Challenges to trustees’ qualifications or performance
  • Disputes involving business partners
  • Litigation originating with creditors
  • Real estate-related complications
  • Claims that executors have failed to distribute property as specified
