Probate Litigation

Legal disputes following the death of a family member add an additional layer of difficulty to a time where emotions and nerves are already raw.

An experienced attorney from Willis Law can help you identify your options and choose the best approach for resolving your issues as efficiently and painlessly as possible.

We represent clients throughout West Michigan in trust litigation, including disputes stemming from accusations of:

  • Fiduciary misconduct
  • Trust fraud, such as financial manipulation for personal use
  • Beneficiary disputes, including those involving incapacity allegations
  • Removal of a trustee
  • Trustee breach of fiduciary duty lawsuits

If a dispute has arrived after the death of your loved one, it is important to act quickly to protect your rights. We will thoroughly investigate the situation in question and pursue an outcome that protects your interests. Call toll free (888) 461-7744 to arrange a consultation.

Alternatives to Trust Litigation

Our attorneys have the experience and resources necessary to achieve successful results at trial, but that does not mean that litigation is the best option available to you. We are committed to helping our clients resolve disputes over trusts as painlessly and effectively as possible.

In disputes among family members, the most painless way to resolve disputes is often to pursue alternative dispute resolution methods such as settlement negotiations, mediation or arbitration. However, if litigation really is the best option available for pursuing your rights, we are prepared to be your strongest advocates in probate court.
