Asserting Your Interests In Probate Litigation

Conflict is often a part of life. It is also often a part of death and when loved ones become ill.

At StachlerHarmon, in Dayton, our Ohio law firm helps clients resolve disputes concerning money, property, possessions and family responsibilities in anticipation of, or following, a death or incapacity.

For the last two decades, we have represented hundreds of local clients in probate litigation involving these and other probate-related matters:

  • Disputes about a will or trust
  • Contested guardianships
  • Breaches of fiduciary duty
  • Business succession disputes
  • Title disputes
  • Contested distribution of decedent estates in the absence of a will
  • Wrongful death lawsuits brought by executors or administrators on behalf of surviving family or next of kin

Advocating Effectively For You

Probate lawsuits can arise for many reasons. Parties may believe an executor or fiduciary has disregarded the terms of a will or trust. Other times, they may allege an administrator exerted undue influence upon a vulnerable family member in order to extract money or benefit from that person's estate. Sometimes, parties file lawsuits because they believe they have been passed over, or written out of, a loved one's will.

Every probate lawsuit is different, but parties to any probate lawsuit can benefit from the assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable probate attorney at StachlerHarmon. Retain our lawyers, and we can establish the facts and argue your case effectively, in court, or privately through negotiations or alternative dispute resolution processes, including mediation and arbitration.

You can count on us to listen to your concerns, examine the evidence and devise a strong legal strategy to reach your objectives, whether you are pursuing a probate lawsuit or defending against one. We are committed to simply solving complex issues.
