Cowles and Thompson’s probate litigators understand the unique challenges and issues facing those who are involved in disputes over a loved one’s estate. Our attorneys approach probate litigation matters from a business perspective, while also maintaining sensitivity and respect toward the feelings of family members who are working through often challenging disputes — many involving disagreements with other family members.
Key Areas of Experience
Our estate litigation experience includes will contests, trust disputes, guardianship disputes, cases involving removal of executors and trustees, heirship determinations, and other contested probate, estate, guardianship, or trust matters. Our attorneys also advise our clients on ways in which senior citizens can minimize their chances of being victimized by those who might try to con them out of their finances during their retirement years.
Our probate litigation attorneys are motivated to listen first and litigate second. We understand that each of our probate clients may have different objectives and goals for resolution of their disputes. Some clients are interested in complete justice and fairness, others simply want to explore what their rights may be with regard to a probate issue, and still others desire to forgo some of those legal rights in order to promote ongoing family harmony into the future.
Our attorneys work to provide creative and case-specific solutions that are unique to the goals and desires of each individual client.
