Probate Litigation Attorneys in Kalamazoo
Aggressive Representation Focused on Your Goals
When someone passes away, their estate enters probate, where their property will be divided according to what is outlined in their will. If no will is present, the state selects an administrator to oversee the probate administration process. If at any point during probate a party believes they have been wronged or a mistake has been made, the dispute may need to be litigated.
If you are involved in a probate-related dispute, you need legal representation. At Willis Law, our probate litigation attorneys in Kalamazoo develop thoughtful and aggressive strategies to ensure our clients’ success. We understand that the probate process is difficult enough without feeling stuck in a contentious dispute. Let us help you find your way through this matter to a positive resolution.
