Our law firm has grown since attorney Susan M. Edmonson started this law firm in 1987. But, our law firm's client focus has remained consistent. We offer a hands-on approach to understand clients' specific goals and concerns. Our detailed focus is particularly beneficial in emotionally-draining contested probate cases.
Strong Background in Contested Probate Cases
The attorneys at our law firm have an extensive background handling complicated probate cases involving allegations of fraud and undue influence. Part of our work includes protecting heirs, as well as family members who believe they were wrongfully left off a will. Each situation is unique. We offer a detailed approach to understand clients' specific concerns, such as:
- Heirs not issued inheritance in a timely manner
- Assets were not distributed according to the trusts' terms
- Family member was not in a mental state to make estate decisions
- Trustee mishandled the estate using funds for his or her financial benefit
- Caregiver coerced loved one into leaving more money in the will for him or her
Contested will and trusts are complicated. We offer mediation services as an alternative to trial. Attorney Rebecca Murphy is a certified mediator. She works as a neutral-third party to help families find amicable solutions, instead of protecting one side's interests. We offer a non-threatening environment for families to discuss emotional concerns and common goals.
