Experienced Attorney Litigating Probate Disputes

The death of a loved one is always a painful occurrence. Unfortunately, that pain is too often compounded by problems in the estate which cause disputes among heirs and beneficiaries. If you suspect that a will or its execution does not reflect the wishes of the deceased, you have a right to challenge the proceedings in probate court. At the Law Offices of Rose M. La Femina, we are ready to assist you in inheritance controversies arising from:

  • Lack of capacity
  • Undue influence
  • Breach of fiduciary duty

Preventing exploitation of the elderly

Many probate disputes stem from suspicions that a particular individual took advantage of the declining health or dementia of the deceased to insinuate himself into the will to the detriment of the rightful heirs.  If a caretaker or family member manipulated an unfair change in the will, that change can be invalidated.

Demanding accountability and fairness

The individual chosen to be the personal representative of the estate or to hold power of attorney has a fiduciary duty to dispatch his obligations professionally. Any deliberate fraud or negligence in accounting for assets can and should be challenged. We have vast experience dealing with estate matters and can form a quick and accurate appraisal of whether matters are being handled competently and honestly.

Don’t add to your emotional loss by losing out on your loved one’s legacy. Call the Law Offices of Rose M. La Femina today at 954-332-2377 or contact our office online to schedule an appointment.
