Resolving Your Family’s Estate Dispute
Ideally, a loved one’s passing is followed by the smooth administration of an estate, including attention to a valid will, and timely distribution of assets and property to heirs. This outcome is the ideal – not necessarily the reality. Many estates and probate proceedings prove to be problematic because family members often disagree as to how an estate should be handled due to a will that may be invalid, or the actions of a disgruntled heir or beneficiary.
At my law firm, Troy A. Lanier, P.C., I routinely represent the interests of executors, administrators, heirs, trustees, beneficiaries and others connected to estate disputes.
Providing Dedicated Representation
I offer 25-plus years of experience as a lawyer. I am dedicated to your goals and have extensive legal knowledge that protects your rights. My law firm’s tradition of personal service assures you of open lines of communication and prompt answers to your questions.
Has your once-loving family become hopelessly divided over a disputed estate? Are there allegations or issues of incompetency or undue influence regarding the preparation of a will? Have accusations of fraud or misappropriation of funds made probate or trust litigation a foregone conclusion?
I carefully review all documents, “crunch the numbers,” examine motivations and interests of various family members and perform my due diligence to locate common ground that may produce consensus. If an amicable conclusion to an estate dispute is not possible, I am fully prepared to represent one or more parties in the courtroom.
I serve as a county administrator for the Probate Court of Richmond County, and am regularly appointed to serve as a conservator or administrator by probate court judges in the State of Georgia.
