Probate Litigation


Losing a loved one, or assisting a family member who can no longer care for themselves is stressful. Having to deal with the legal complications that arise out of those situations can often make things even harder. Probate, trust administration, guardianships, and conservatorships all involve an executor or fiduciary managing assets for the benefit of others. When questions arise regarding whether a fiduciary has acted properly or concerning the validity or intent of estate planning documents the disputes are played out in probate court.

At Reeder Plachta Murphy, we understand that probate litigation can be costly not only in terms of estate or trust assets, but to personal relationships, as well. We strive to help you resolve probate disputes with a minimum of conflict and expense. If resolution outside of court is not possible or not in your best interests, we are prepared to protect you in court as well.
