Probate Litigation

Probate Litigation

Our Probate Litigation attorneys have decades of experience assisting clients with a wide range of probate disputes and litigation and work closely with Cramer & Anderson’s Estate Planning & Trust Administration team.

We understand how to create proper wills, trusts, and estate plans, which positions our attorneys to effectively challenge questionable or improper wills and probate actions. If you think a family member was the subject of undue influence, for example, or lacked the capacity to execute an estate plan, give us a call.

We also represent family members, executors, and fiduciaries in defending wills against unsubstantiated challenges, and defending probate and trust administration activities against challenges and litigation. If you are an Executor or Trustee whose estate or trust is being contested, or if your conduct as a fiduciary is being challenged, our attorneys can help.

Cramer & Anderson additionally represents businesses, financial institutions, and other entities that are dealing with probate litigation.

Whatever your role in an estate, probate, or trust dispute, our attorneys can assist you with matters that include but are not limited to the following:

  • Will contests/challenges
  • Claims of undue influence and/or diminished testamentary capacity
  • Estate, probate, and trust accounting challenges
  • Probate appeals
  • Beneficiary disputes
  • Conservatorship issues and disputes
  • Creditor claims and litigation
  • Rights of inheritance matters
  • Breach of fiduciary duty

Connecticut Probate Courts have jurisdiction over these and other matters we handle for clients, including

  • Probating wills and the administration of estates
  • Overseeing testamentary and living trusts
  • Determining title to real and personal property
  • Construing the meaning of wills and trusts

As the website for the state’s probate courts explains, “When a person who owns property dies, the Probate Courts oversee division of the property. Most often the division is carried out according to the person’s wishes as set forth in a will. If no will exists, the property is divided according to Connecticut law. The Probate Courts ensure that any debt owed by the deceased person, funeral expenses and taxes are paid before the remaining assets are distributed.”

Whatever your issue related to probate matters, wills, estate planning, trusts, elder care, or special needs care, our attorneys have the experience to handle the matter and are ready to help.
