Estate transfer after the death of a loved one can be a very difficult time. Probate administration, the legal process through which assets are distributed to beneficiaries, can be charged with emotion. It is not uncommon for disputes to arise and wills to be contested. Even when the decedent’s will has made their wishes clear, people may attempt to exploit the situation and claim ownership or rights to property they’re not entitled to.
When such contention arises, call Solomon, Sherman & Gabay for experienced, knowledgeable counsel.

As part of our representation for your claim, a team of experts will conduct an investigation into contested wills to determine if undue influence or diminished mental capacity may justify the contest. We will help establish the validity of a common law marriage and the extent of the inheritance rights of the spouse. Contested home ownership can be resolved through quiet title action, a type of lawsuit that establishes a beneficiary’s right to a decedent’s titled property.
