Probate Litigation

Hackleman, Olive & Judd represents clients throughout the state of Florida and beyond in complex probate-related disputes. Our experienced litigators are familiar with the sensitive and emotional disagreements that often arise when a loved one has passed away. When problems arise in connection with the probate administration process, we work with our clients to resolve the matter so that the last wishes of their loved one can be properly honored.

The attorneys in our estate planning practice represent individuals, family members, beneficiaries, personal representatives, trustees and other parties in a broad range of estate litigation matters, including will contests, trust contests and creditor disputes . If a conflict or disagreement over a will or trust arises, our attorneys strive to resolve the matter outside of the litigation process. While negotiation, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution successfully resolve many of these disputes, certain matters will need to be litigated in court. In these situations, our lawyers advocate for the rights of our clients through trial and any appeals.

Probate litigation is complex and is best handled by an experienced Fort Lauderdale probate litigation lawyer. Our probate litigation team is comprised of skilled trial attorneys who have an in-depth understanding of the complex laws and legal procedures governing estates and trusts. We draw upon this knowledge to investigate probate-related disputes so that we can build the strongest case possible. We know that our clients are at a difficult juncture in their lives and we are committed to doing everything possible to protect their rights and achieve a positive outcome.
