Make Sure Your Rights Are Protected In Probate And Trust Matters

Probate and trust matters are two of the most powerful — and potentially life-changing — procedures under Florida law. In probate, you're dealing with administering and distributing a decedent's assets. With a trust, you can dictate how you want your life assets transferred. In both situations, you're greatly impacting the future — and financial well-being — of your loved ones, beneficiaries and heirs.

At Lins Law Group, P.A., we recognize that probate and trust matters are complex and emotional processes for most individuals and families — and we are committed to helping ensure that both process moves forward smoothly for you and your loved ones. Regardless of the complexity of your estate or trust, our attorneys are committed to guiding administrators, trustees, families and beneficiaries through the probate and trust administration process with intelligence and confidence.

Probate Litigation When There's A Dispute, There's Litigation

In addition to handling probate and trust administration matters, we help clients with probate and trust litigation disputes, including will contests and objections to the administration of an estate or trust. Often wills or trusts are contested as a result of late changes that exclude or limit the inheritance of a family member. Will and trust contests are typically related to claims of lack of capacity of the benefactor and undue influence involved in the drafting of a will.

Many times beneficiaries feel left out of the administration process because the person handling the estate or trust administration is not fulfilling their obligations. Having legal representation can help protect a beneficiary's rights.
