Probate concerns the administration of the estate of a decedent. These actions are carried out under court supervision, require extensive preparation of legal documents and appearances at court hearings. They may entail probate litigation, where heirs or creditors clash over the validity or interpretation of the will, asset protection or handling of creditor claims. The law and procedures can be complex and exacting. Working with an experienced Orange County probate lawyer can alleviate a number of frustration and help ensure that these complex legal proceedings are handled as smoothly and successfully as possible.

The Benefits of Hiring a Probate Litigation Attorney

  • Document Preparation - A probate attorney professionally prepares probate documents so that the court may speedily approve them.
  • Will Contests - In probate litigation, you may be an heir suspecting the will is a forgery or that the writer of the will was subjected to undue influence.
