Oakland County MI 's Trusted Choice For Trust Attorney Services
Save Your Interests With Trust Attorney Services From Aldrich Legal Services
Losing a loved one is hard enough on its own; when that loss comes with a costly legal battle, it can be practically unbearable. Probate cases involve determining how a deceased person's assets are distributed. Though they are often resolved amicably, some probate proceedings become the subjects of enormous disputes, pulling families apart and adding to the emotional devastation of the person's death. Aldrich Legal Services is committed to preventing such difficult cases from arising. Our estate attorney team has long worked with probate cases in the Plymouth area, and knows how to resolve effectively and amicably.
As with many legal disputes, the key to succeeding in a probate case is to act quickly and decisively. Aldrich Legal Services will aid you in the early stages of a probate case. We start by helping you file a claim, stating in detail what you expect to receive and why you have a right to it. We also aid in the distribution of assets from the deceased person's will or trust, making sure that everyone receives what is rightfully theirs. Through effective administration, we keep probate disputes to a minimum, sparing you the effort and emotional hardship of challenging your loved ones in court.
Reliable Litigation Support When Probate Disputes Go to Court
While effective administration reduces the likelihood of litigation, some disputes are simply too serious to be settled out of court. If you are facing a probate suit or decide that you must file one of your own, we will be by your side throughout the case. Aldrich Legal Services knows how to handle an array of different probate disputes, including:
- Trustee Disputes- We have experience with disagreements over personal representation and all other issues related to the trustee.
- Improper Use of Funds- If someone has stolen or misused funds from your loved one's will or trust, we can establish that they appropriated the money and require them to return it. Likewise, if you are accused of misusing funds, we can prove that you used them for a valid purpose.
- Will Contests- We have experience interpreting wills in detail, and can resolve ambiguities about who is a beneficiary, which assets are being promised, and other questions.
Probate litigation is complex and requires the attention of experienced and knowledgeable counsel. Our attorneys have the experience and legal know-how to protect your rights and interests. We offer skilled litigators who take the time to build strong cases for the clients we serve. Whether your case is best resolved by negotiated agreement or by trial, you can rely on us for the strong advocacy you require.
In addition to helping resolve disputes over the assets of the deceased, we also help clients prevent disputes while they are still alive. Our estate planning team will help you with:
- Drafting a Will -Wills are essential to ensuring that your assets are passed on in the way you see fit. We will help you draft one that lays your plans out in detail, leaving no ambiguities that could give rise to disputes.
- Creating a Trust -Trusts are an effective way to protect your property from taxes, probate costs, and a variety of other factors that can reduce the amount you leave to your loved ones. We will help you come up with a trust that meets your specific requirements.
- Reviewing Your Estate -We help you conduct periodic reviews of your will, ensuring that it takes into account changes in your assets and family.
