NYC Estate Litigation Lawyers

Estate Litigation is a concept that no reasonable person wants to face in their lifetime. It’s complicated, emotionally draining, and impossible for a layperson to carry out. That’s why there are Estate Litigation attorneys always standing by ready to help people who are facing a situation of litigation involving a loved one’s estate. Even if there is a proper will in place after the death of a loved one, it’s very common for family members to contest wills or seek legal guidance after a will has been revealed. And we all know how fun the Probate process is (not at all). It’s a lawyer who is going to help you avoid all of this unpleasantness.

The Probate process is lengthy and complicated, and few lawyers will disagree that it can be one of the most complicated areas in the legal world. An Estate Litigation lawyer is always a busy person, and the people that they help are people that truly need help. Nothing is quite so important as carrying out the final wishes of a loved one who is dearly missed, and only an Estate Litigation lawyer is going to be able to know the law well enough to take care of everything that needs to be done.

New York Wills are sometimes contested. It is a period in which the Fiduciary is sometimes caught between two family members or friends that are arguing over the estate of a loved one. This can absolutely cause permanent damage to family relationships, so it’s vital to have a New York Estate Litigation Lawyer on your side before things get too complicated. The New York Probate process can be an emotional one, but with a good lawyer at your side, things are always easier.

Whether you’re someone seeking to avoid litigation at a later date or you’re someone already embroiled in Estate Litigation over the belongings and money of a loved one, the people here at Raiser & Kenniff, PC are the people who can get your work done for you. They can truly make your life easier during this entire process. Estate lawyers go into this area of law because they care deeply about family relationships, the way the law helps people who are grieving during this time, and general family matters. No one who has worked in this area of law has been emotionally unaffected by the good that they do for families and family relationships.

As areas of Estate Litigation are often subject to misunderstandings and very poorly done legal documents, we sometimes have to sort through things that have already become very complicated. No job is too complicated for us. We have over 100 years of combined legal experience in these matters which means there’s always someone at Raiser & Kenniff, PC who can help you in your particular situation, whether it’s with avoiding later litigation by cleaning up your legal documents or sorting through litigation at a later time when Probate is already in full swing. Calling a lawyer will be one of the most important things you do for you and your family.

The Last Will and Testament is supposed to sort through things, and many times there will be a trust set up that helps to avoid litigation, but at other times litigation over an Estate is simply unavoidable in every single way. If that’s the situation you’re facing, there’s no time to waste. You need to contact our team as soon as you can.
