Solving Estate Challenges With Probate Litigation

Disputes over the legality of a will or trust are not uncommon and they can become extremely contentious. Family members may fight over the distribution of assets. Beneficiaries may believe that executors or fiduciaries are not appropriately managing the estate or trust. The mental capacity of the testator may be questioned. Without the help of a third party, these disputes may never be adequately resolved.

At Kufus Law, LLC, we provide representation for personal representatives, executors, trustees, beneficiaries, heirs and family members in Minnesota probate disputes. We understand that the nature of probate disputes is often very sensitive and emotions may be escalated. Our lawyers work to resolve disputes amicably while protecting our clients’ interests. When the opposing party will not be reasonable, however, we will take disputes to trial.

We Have The Experience To Resolve Complex Disputes

Probate litigation typically involves accounting for all assets, returning them to the estate when necessary and distributing them to beneficiaries. We will investigate the allegations and may work with forensic accountants, appraisers, investment advisers and other financial experts when appropriate.

We can assist you with probate disputes that involve issues such as:

  • Will and trust contests
  • Wasting or mishandling of assets
  • Failure to diversify assets
  • Misappropriation of assets
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Undue influence on the testator/grantor
  • Guardianship/conservatorship litigation

Our attorneys will attempt to resolve the dispute via negotiation or mediation, but we always prepare to go to trial if necessary. We will discuss your goals before proceeding with your case. If preserving family relationships is important, we will work hard to keep matters as amicable as possible.
