Detroit Probate Attorneys
Probate litigation is a complex and unique area of law. Attorneys at Prince Law Firm in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, focus on estate planning, trusts and probate. For that reason, our attorneys are exceptionally well-prepared to represent a client involved in a dispute over the legitimacy of a will, trust, or power of attorney, the administration of an estate or trust, or the appointment of a guardian or conservator.
Will Contests · Trust Contests · Breach Of Fiduciary Duty
Sometimes a dispute involves a fiduciary who disregards the terms of a document or the law; or it involves a family member who is mad because he or she didn’t get more or was passed over in favor of another for a position of responsibility; or maybe someone lacked the capacity to make a will; or a trust is contested; or there are allegations of undue influence. Diseases such as dementia as well as old age can unfortunately sometimes make elders a target of undue influence.
Quite simply, odds are that we’ve seen it – as the saying goes, “no thing new under the sun.” These areas are all supervised by the probate courts. We can help you understand how to contest a will or trust, and have ample experience with appeals. If you have concerns about one of those areas or are involved in a dispute, contact our office and make arrangements to speak with one of our Detroit probate lawyers. During your initial consultation, the attorney will explain your options.
