Estate litigation should be handled by a lawyer with Texas probate experience and litigation experience. Shutt Law Firm handles litigation in a variety of situations…
- Estate litigation often involves Contesting a Will in probate court. How to contest a will in Texas depends on the facts of each situation. Sometimes a Last Will and Testament is invalid because there was fraud, undue influence, or a lack of mental capacity. If you have doubts about whether or not a will is valid in Texas, talk with a lawyer at a free consultation about your potential estate dispute.
- If you have doubts about the actions of a power of attorney or a legal guardian, you may have a case for Power of Attorney Abuse. A guardian or agent acting under a power of attorney owes a “fiduciary duty.” This means the agent owes a high responsibility, and Breach of Fiduciary Duty occurs when an agent does acts improperly.
- Trust Disputes often arise when a trustee fails to follow the terms of the trust, mishandles trust property, fails to provide a trust accounting, or otherwise breaches the fiduciary duty of a Texas trustee.
- If a loved one has a legal guardian or needs a legal guardian, you may need a lawyer to represent you. A Guardianship Dispute may arise when you don’t think a guardianship is needed, when you want to challenge the guardian, and when the guardian has been involved in elder abuse, breach of fiduciary duty, or mistreatment of your loved one.
