When Disputes Must Be Resolved

Estate law matters are not always about creating documents and handling administrative law matters in probate court. Disputes sometimes arise, leading to legal problems such as:

  • Will contests
  • Probate litigation
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
  • Conflicts between adult children and second wives or husbands of decedents
  • Conflicts among estranged branches of families
  • Disputes related to business partners’ or creditors’ rights

In matters of contention like these, attorney Patrick Nolan’s litigation skills may be an asset, allowing for efficient dispute resolution. His ability to assert clients’ rights strongly complements Mr. DeLeeuw’s in-depth knowledge of complexities in estate law matters.
