Probate And Trust Litigation
Are you an heir or beneficiary of an estate that has been mismanaged? Do you believe that a will is invalid or that someone exerted undue influence over an elder, causing him or her to wrongly change a will? There are a number of circumstances in which it is proper, even appropriate, to bring a will contest or probate case to court.
Guardianships And Guardianship Litigation
Instances arise when people are not capable of managing financial, personal or household affairs. An illness or disability at any age can result in the need for a family member to step in and make important decisions.
The guardianship lawyers at Paul, Elkind, Branz & Kelton can help you and your family obtain temporary or permanent guardianship for an elder or other family member. We also assist families with guardianships and conservatorship for financial decision making on behalf of incapacitated individuals.
