Probate

Will contests and other probate matters bring multiple complexities, both personal and legal. They can be particularly disruptive to family life— pitting relative against relative in courtroom battles. McManis Faulkner understands and our trial team evaluates such cases with compassion.  Our goal is to find a prompt and economical resolution, inside or outside the court system.

Our attorneys discern when mediation or arbitration are in a client's best interests, and we have experience working with alternative dispute resolution providers to obtain successful results. We bring significant expertise to our representation of individuals, professional fiduciaries, and beneficiaries in all aspects of probate litigation. Our record includes successful resolution of such matters as the validity of wills and trusts, the conduct of trustees, conservators, and personal representatives, and claims for distribution from estates and trusts.
