The passing of a loved one is a time for families to come together. Unfortunately, shared grief can quickly sour into mutual resentment due to arguments over the deceased’s estate. Lawsuits, countersuits, and accusations are all-too-common during New York probate proceedings—and it will take the help of a knowledgable and dedicated attorney to protect your rights at trial.
Call Us When Your Case Calls for Probate Litigation
The attorneys at Landskind & Ricaforte Law Group have years of experience initiating and defending probate court proceedings in courts throughout the tri-state area. Our ability to navigate complex estate matters allows us to represent clients struggling with all kinds of probate contests.
We can help you with a variety of estate litigation matters, including:
- Failed or delayed distribution of assets. Heirs may feel powerless as they wait for an executor to release their assets. Failed communication, noncompliance, or delays in appraisal or liquidation can all give rise to legal claims between executors and beneficiaries. We help beneficiaries get answers and receive the property to which they are entitled under the law.
- Disinheritance. If you were left out of a will due to an error or ambiguity in the document, we can help to get your inheritance reinstated.
- Executor misconduct. If an executor is engaging in misconduct, we can help beneficiaries by compelling the executor to provide an accounting proceeding and asking the court to remove the executor if appropriate.
- Defending an executor’s actions. Executors who have been falsely accused of misconduct will have to defend their actions in court—and if they are unsuccessful, they can be held personally liable for losses to the estate. We can defend executors against claims of negligence and assist them in their administrative duties.
