Skilled Probate Trial Lawyers
Probate is the legal process by which an executor or administrator collects the assets, pays the debts and distributes the remaining assets of an estate upon an individual’s death. Since state laws and legal procedures vary, it is critical to consult with a Fort Myers probate litigation lawyer to ensure proper distribution of the deceased’s assets.
The probate process does not always proceed smoothly. Complex and highly contested issues may arise in the course of probating a decedent’s will. While the parties involved may want to honor the last wishes of their relative or loved one, they may vigorously disagree over the nature or validity of the decedent’s last wishes.
