Probate Litigation

Los Angeles Probate Litigation Attorney

What if a Will Is Contested?

Probate litigation is sometimes needed to protect the rights of a decedent's beneficiaries and heirs, oftentimes as a result of a poorly drafted will or a dispute between family members. Since probate law in California can be extremely complex and issues of this nature can easily become emotionally-charged battles, these disputes require the expertise of a skilled attorney in order to be resolved.

Are you facing a dispute regarding a loved one's estate that has escalated to the point where litigation is necessary? A Los Angeles probate litigation lawyer from the Law Offices of David A. Shapiro, P.C. can protect your legal rights and advocate for a favorable resolution on your behalf.

Probate Litigation May Be Necessary in the Face of:

  • A will contest
  • Fraud, duress or undue influence by one or more parties on the decedent
  • Poor performance by an executor or administrator

During probate, a family member may feel overlooked, may feel that he or she received less than other family members or may feel that he or she is being cheated out of his or her inheritance. These are all emotionally and legally complex issues that are best addressed by a Los Angeles probate litigation lawyer who is highly experienced in probate litigation and who will fight tirelessly to uphold or contest a will or handle any other type of dispute.
