When An Inheritance Is Disputed

Establishing a will or trust is the most effective and efficient way to ensure that assets, property and personal belongings are distributed according to one's wishes. What happens, however, when a son or daughter believes that an ailing parent was coerced into adding a specific amendment to a will or a beneficiary asserts that a trustee is mismanaging a trust's assets?

Disputes related to inheritance matters are emotionally-charged and can create irreparable rifts between family members and result in serious financial losses. At The Flanigan Law Group, our skilled attorneys are sensitive to the difficult circumstances involved in these types of cases and do everything we can to minimize the personal and financial losses, and harm you suffer.
