Probate litigation and trust ligation is a time-consuming, complicated matter. Before a matter is ready to be argued in court, an attorney needs to evaluate the merits of the claim, investigate the claim, research case law and statutes, and develop a strategy for the case. Extensive work is required to prepare to argue a dispute in probate court. Significant experience, resources, skills, and knowledge are required to win a disputed probate matter.
The attorneys of Berkshire & Burmeister have extensive experience defending contested and disputed matters in probate court. They also have extensive experience in investigating claims and filing challenges to wills, trusts, guardianships, and conservatorships. Whether you are alleging fraud, capacity, compliance, or other wrongdoing, we understand the steps necessary to build a strong case in your favor.
