With an in-depth knowledge of Estate Law and a focus on providing fair solutions, Boughton Law helps families and companies resolve estate related disputes such as challenges to wills and the appointment of representatives.
Boughton Law’s Estate Litigation Practice Group helps you navigate the complexities of estate management during a difficult period for you and your family. Unfortunately, even though a person may have been thorough in their estate planning, disputes can still arise, even before a person has passed away. We’re committed to providing fair, well-informed, and compassionate guidance on matters relating to the appointment of a representative, challenges to a valid will, and claims based on statutory rights to vary the terms of a will. Our goal is to ensure that a deceased’s estate is properly accounted for and distributed according to both their wishes and to the law.
We represent heirs, beneficiaries, estate representatives, and individual or corporate trustees to help resolve disputes and bring or defend claims in court if necessary. We also help family members obtain the appointment of a representative in the event that a person becomes unable to make personal or financial decisions without assistance.
Some of the dispute resolution services we offer include:
We work closely with the lawyers in both our Wills, Trusts, and Estates Practice Group as well as our Tax Practice Group. Together, our team brings a comprehensive and in-depth knowledge of estate law to help you resolve any disputes with dignity, expediency, and fairness.
