What is Probate?

Probate is the legal process of proving a will. This process establishes the authenticity of the will, addressing who is handling the estate and the distribution of the assets of the estate according to the will. According to Florida law, when there is no will, assets are distributed amongst surviving relatives.

Preserving & Protecting Your Rights in Will Contests & Inheritance Disputes

We provide skilled representation to beneficiaries and fiduciaries in trust contests, will contests, accounting actions, trust and will construction actions where the meaning of an instrument or identity of a beneficiary is at issue, reformation suits as well as a wide range of fiduciary litigation including fiduciary self-dealing improper gifts or distributions and investment of trust assets.

These representations necessarily involve a broad range of disputes with sophisticated and novel legal issues and our experience in all phases of estates and trusts enables us to identify critical issues early on in a case and efficiently develop strategies to maximize favorable results for our clients.
