Comprehensive Probate Representation — Helping Families Heal and Move Forward GRANT LAW CORPORATION benefits you with a personalized approach to estate administration and probate:
Complete probate and trust administration: To avoid probate many clients have revocable trusts prepared as part of their estate plan. The probate and trust administration processes are very similar. Each requires someone in a position of responsibility, ensuring the estate plan is properly carried out. We handle all administrative tasks for probate and for trust administration.
Complete probate and trust litigation: We make every effort in administration of trusts and estates to resolve all disputes in a way that avoids lawsuits. Disputes surface from matters such as allegations of duress, outright theft, exploitation of the elderly and accusations of improper asset distribution. When these disputes cannot be handled outside of court, we have the skill and experience to litigate the matters on your behalf.
Counseling and guidance throughout the process: For probate and trust administrations, we work with you through the entire process. We emphasize cordial and efficient family interactions throughout.
Avoiding Probate in Florida by Using Relevant Estate Planning Tools: Comprehensive, personalized estate planning can include use of revocable trusts, proper beneficiary designations and other legal devices to minimize or even completely avoid the probate process.
These types of disputes often arise when a trustee has mismanaged or misappropriated trust assets, or when a trustee has not properly cooperated with trust beneficiaries. If a will or trust is challenged because it was not properly signed and witnessed, or because it’s determined that, at the time of execution, the decedent did not have requisite mental capacity to make informed decisions concerning the distribution of their estate, our attorneys work to effectively litigate or resolve these disputes.
