What is estate or probate litigation?

  • When someone dies and owns any assets, those assets have to be either transferred or administered or somehow get to your heirs.
  • That can be done in several ways, including drafting a will, preparing trusts, and putting assets into your heirs’ names.
  • However, sometimes you may not be happy with the way that either the will is being administered or how the administration itself is taking place and that involves probate litigation.
