Together We Will Settle Your Loved One’s Final Affairs
At the law office of Weinstein, Kaplan & Cohen, P.C., our attorneys guide personal representatives/executors and heirs in probate and estate administration. Our legal services include representing family members in pursuing claims alleging duress or fraud. Our focus is on preserving the assets and interests of the estate. In effect, we are also preserving the interests of beneficiaries due inheritance at the final closing of the estate. We strive to provide effective representation in simple terms.
Our estate and probate litigation services include:
- Trust litigation: Our probate litigation attorneys assist clients in resolving disputes involving existing trusts and testamentary trusts being created during the administration of the estate. The disputes frequently involve family members who wish to contest the trust or designated beneficiary, claims involving breach of fiduciary duty (against the trustee), and other trust disputes.
- Creditor claims: The executor/personal representative has a duty to carefully examine all creditor claims against the estate. We assist clients in evaluating and validating such claims. In addition, when unwarranted claims are made, we contest the debt.
- Will contests: We represent plaintiffs and defendants in will disputes, including will contest claims alleging duress, undue influence, and fraud. We also resolve disputes involving lifetime promises and distributions to nonspouses.
- Other probate litigation: We work diligently to resolve any claims against the estate. In addition, we assist the personal representative/executor to pursue any relevant claims on behalf of the estate.
