About Probate Litigation
Probate litigation typically occurs when a will contestation arises amongst the beneficiaries and legal action must be taken. In some situations, the dispute centers on the belief that the decedent executed the will while not of sound mind due to illness or mental incapacity.
Other causes of probate disputes include:
- One or more beneficiaries not receiving the amount that is due
- Failure of beneficiary to perform fiduciary duties
- Conflicts regarding guardianships and conservatorships
- One or more beneficiaries were not given property inventory
- Claims that the decedent executed the will under undue influence
- Undisclosed information concerning creditors
Our attorneys represent parties on either side of the issue, whether you need to contest a will or if you have been appointed as estate administrator and need to defend against the claims of heirs or creditors. We're prepared to fight for your interests and help you through this difficult time.
Trust Litigation in Roseville
Just as it is possible to take legal action over disputes arising during the process of probate, we can also represent you in a case involving the administration of a trust. If you are the beneficiary of a trust and are concerned that the trustee may be cheating you out of your inheritance, we can review the situation in order to determine whether you have grounds for legal action.
Common examples of situations that lead to trust litigation include:
- Violations of the provisions of the trust
- Failure to properly invest the funds in the trust
- Mismanagement of trust funds
- Breaches of fiduciary duty
- Misappropriation or concealment of funds
In addition to representing trust beneficiaries, we also assist trustees who are facing allegations of bad faith conduct or errors in trust administration. At Herrig & Vogt, LLP, we have made it our mission to help families through complicated and emotional estate administration processes in order to reach an agreeable solution and mitigate any unnecessary stress the process might cause.
