Helping Clients Probate Their Interests in Estate Disputes

After the death of a loved one, there are a number of different circumstances that can make it necessary to go to court to make sure his or her estate is distributed properly. An experienced and compassionate attorney can make sure your interests are protected in this process.

At The Roberts Law Firm, P.C., our St. Louis probate litigation lawyers represent clients locally and nationwide in Missouri will and trust disputes. Our firm represents parties who wish to contest wills and trusts as well as personal representatives and trustees facing estate litigation.

Representing Beneficiaries, Estates and Other Interested Parties

While most people would prefer to settle the affairs of their loved ones with as little court involvement as possible, there are times when disputes arise that cannot be settled among the family members. Common allegations in probate and trust litigation include the following:

  • One party solicited changes to the estate plan through fraud, duress or undue influence.
  • The testator did not have the mental or physical capacity to make a legally binding will.
  • The personal representative or trustee is not carrying out his or her duties impartially.
  • A party improperly obtained probate or trust assets or funds.

Of course, there are also times when disappointed family members and other parties make illegitimate claims against executors and trustees. We represent both estates and their beneficiaries, as well as third parties such as creditors, in probate and trust matters.
