Estate Litigation Lawyers
We are often called upon to assist with various issues before and after the death of a loved one. We step in when relationships break down and litigation is either threatened or necessary. Our work may involve bringing an application for guardianship on behalf of a close friend or loved one who has become incapable of managing either their property or personal care. Or we may act on behalf of parties who have been granted a valid power of attorney, only to find another person has convinced the grantor to give them the power of attorney instead.
In terms of will challenges, we have acted in service of both those who support the will and those who challenge it. Dependent support claims are brought on behalf of those who were dependent on the deceased before death and discover they have not been adequately provided for in the will. We can even assist a dependent relief claim that arises in the case of the deceased not having a will.
