Lebanon Probate Litigation Lawyer

Even though your loved one had a proper will or trust in place at the time he or she passed away, you may find yourself involved in a dispute over inheritance. Someone in the family may be upset that he or she did not receive anything in the will. A trustee could be acting inappropriately. In these kinds of situations, the advice and guidance of an experienced lawyer is valuable.

Handling a Variety of Probate Litigation in Pennsylvania

Whether you are a beneficiary or heir wishing to challenge the terms of an estate plan, or if instead you are an executor or trustee, our team will provide you with the skilled, effective representation you need. Among the issues we handle are:

  • Will contests: Allegations of undue influence, fraud and a range of other improprieties can lead to a challenge to the validity of the will.
  • Trust disputes: The terms of a trust may be challenged. So too may the acts of a trustee be questioned.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty: The person or entity responsible for estate administration must execute those responsibilities correctly or be vulnerable to legal repercussions.
  • Guardianship: The designation of a person as guardian can be challenged, as can an existing guardian's actions.
