Wills & Estate Litigation:
Litigation concerning wills and estates can be one of the most stressful legal challenges a client can face. There may be court battles over those still alive, such as guardianships and conservatorships, as well as legal fights over powers of attorney, patient advocate designations, and living wills. Probate litigation also includes legal challenges when someone has passed on, including cases involving wills, trusts, estates, asset disputes, joint bank accounts, gifts, and anything else that families can fight about when a loved one dies.
Many probate litigation cases center around families trying to protect loved ones, recover property or money from an outsider, such as a caregiver, financial planner, insurance salesman, or “significant other.” These situations often involve some form of financial exploitation. Briggs Law Office’s experience in this area enables clients to navigate these challenges which are usually compounded by the loss of a loved one.
