Probate & Trust Litigation

Probate & Trust Litigation Overview

Even the best laid plans can go awry. When that happens in the aftermath of the death of a loved one, the attorneys at Minerley Fein, P.A. are ready and capable of responding. Money often brings out the worst in people, and when mom or dad are no longer around, fights over their estates and assets can quickly and easily erupt. Loving family members become bitter enemies. Whether it is the overreaching of a greedy beneficiary, an improperly executed document, or a creditor seeking to take away a family's modest inheritance, estate disputes require an attorney with an understanding of the estate and trust laws and the capability of a litigator, to guide the client to a successful resolution whether through settlement or trial.

At Minerley Fein, P.A. we can handle all types of probate and trust litigation, including:

  • Will Contests
  • Lack of Testamentary Capacity
  • Undue Influence

  • Spousal Elective Share Claims
  • Homestead Claims
  • Elder Abuse
  • Removal and Surcharge of Personal Representatives and Trustees
  • Estate Tax Apportionment Disputes
  • Insolvent Estates
