Probate Litigation

When estate planning and estate administration issues go wrong, you need the experienced probate litigation lawyers of Sweeny, Wingate & Barrow, P.A.. We serve clients in all types of probate and estate planning disputes. If you need someone to fight for you in probate litigation, we can help.

The most common dispute is a will contest. When one or more provisions of the will are called into question, the disagreement may lead to litigation. Our probate litigation lawyers have experience in drafting, interpreting, and administering wills, as well as handling the lawsuits that arise surrounding these documents. Our extensive experience in will construction and interpretation allows us to quickly grasp the key elements in probate litigation.

Probate litigation can also arise in cases of fiduciary negligence by a personal representative, guardian, or trustee. When a person in one of these positions takes actions for their own interests instead of the person they are representing, they have committed a breach of fiduciary duty. We represent clients in cases asserting fiduciary negligence.

From issues regarding the appropriate elective share, to the validity of creditor's claims, we understand the many situations that surround probate law. We can help you find a successful resolution to these problems. We are committed to providing high quality representation to every one of our clients. We are honest, open, and fair, and we will watch out for your best interests.
