Estate and Trust Litigation

Probate and Trial Law Help in Fort Lauderdale

Most of our clients are not interested in litigation.  We understand that entirely—there is already enough emotional confusion in your life when a loved one dies, and you may feel overwhelmed by the distribution of the estate, even in instances where a solid, strong estate plan is in place. 

On the other hand, you do occasionally need to assert your rights in a manner that provides you the full benefits of the law.  If you need to go to court to fight a probate action or proceeding, the Kelley Law Firm offers proficient, experienced attorneys to strategize and argue on your behalf:

  • Estate litigation
  • Contesting the will
  • Undue influence
  • Lack of mental or testamentary capacity
  • Trust litigation
  • Validity of trusts
  • Fulfilling conditions of trusts
  • Fighting invalid claims against the estate

When You Have to Litigate

Our attorneys are gentle, kind, and understanding with clients who may be feeling nervous or confused about litigation.  We can explain what your options are and, then, if you choose to litigate, we are avid advocates who are comfortable being aggressive in court. Since there are different kinds of "litigation attorneys" it is important you understand the difference so you can hire the right lawyer. 

There are certain rules in Florida that relate to how we litigate and what matters are subject to or eligible for the attention of a judge.  You may need to file a lawsuit if you receive certain notices and the other party will not negotiate or if think something unlawful has transpired during the estate planning process. 

Let our experience work for you.  The Kelley Law Firm has served Florida families for many years, and we are here to serve you.
