Probate Lawyer in Wayne County

We serve as counsel in probate matters, including probate administration and litigation. When a person passes away, with estates above a certain value, the will must be validated in probate court. There are various issues that are resolved while the estate passes through probate, including paying off the final debts of the decedent, and transferring property to the beneficiaries named in the will. There can be issues that are in contention, including family members who believe that they have a claim on the estate and file a will contest. Other cases may involve cases of undue influence, in which it is believed that the decedent changed their will based upon the influence of another, whether a family member, caregiver or other party, at a time when the person was truly unable to make such a decision. We represent individuals in probate administration in simple cases, as well as those that will require skilled counsel to resolve favorably.
