Legal Counsel And Advocacy Throughout The Massachusetts Probate Process

The probate process can be complex, so it is important to have a clear understanding of your rights as well as your obligations. Our attorneys will take a comprehensive approach, review your interests as an executor or beneficiary, and ensure the timely and proper administration of the estate.

Our Boston probate lawyers are experienced with handling all issues, including:

  • Assisting executors and representatives
  • Wills and probate litigation, such as will contests related to capacity or undue influence
  • Representation in probate court
  • Distribution of assets
  • Tax liability and estate taxes
  • Disputes that arise between beneficiaries and fiduciaries

When Disputes Lead To Litigation

Beneficiaries can take legal action against an executor, and other disputes may arise between beneficiaries in a will contest. Our attorneys understand the emotional complexities of these issues and know how difficult the administration of a parent’s estate can be. Beyond the emotional challenges of a family dispute, the legal aspects are also extraordinarily complex. We employ experience, strategy, and skill to analyze legal issues and effectively assert your rights.
