Legal Help In The Probate Process
If you have recently lost a loved one, you are about to enter into the probate process. This is a legal process that is simple in concept but quite complicated and nuanced in practice. Whether you have been named an administrator or are a potential beneficiary, it is wise to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you through the process and protect your legal and financial interests.
At Lange, Quill & Powers, PLC, we serve clients throughout Kentucky in all types of probate matters. Our legal team has more than 40 years of legal experience in estate planning and probate matters. We use this experience to help our clients avoid legal issues and resolve disputes efficiently. We are here to help you through this complicated legal process.
Of course, the best way to avoid disputes and other problems in probate is to create an effective estate plan in the first place. A lawyer from our firm can help you create a solid estate plan that will go through probate smoothly and without issue.
When an estate does go through probate, there is still a need for sound legal counsel. Those designated as will executors and estate administrators have a tremendous responsibility, and they are held to a fiduciary standard, which is the highest standard under the law. Simple administrative or accounting errors can result in criminal sanctions or civil actions. Further, any appearance of impropriety in handling the estate could lead to disputes and lawsuits.
At Lange, Quill & Powers, PLC, we help executors and administrators through the process of probate. We can help you follow the appropriate regulations and procedures in the probate process and make sure you meet all the accounting requirements to avoid problems in probate.
When Disputes Do Arise
In some cases, disputes simply cannot be avoided. Our legal team helps clients obtain efficient resolutions – in most cases, through mediation. When disputes of this kind go to court, we provide aggressive litigation representation. The need for attorney representation in probate litigation can involve matters such as the following:
- Will contests
- Trustee removals
- Executor fees
- Administrator appointments
If you are an administrator or a potential beneficiary, we can provide favorable, efficient dispute resolution services for issues that arise in probate.
