Our Arizona probate attorneys offer legal counsel to personal representatives, beneficiaries and other interested parties in controversies regarding probate and trust administration. They also represent clients in will contests and disputes relating to other life planning such as health care and powers of attorney. Arizona has laws that protect against exploitation of a vulnerable adult. Probate litigation may include exploitation of vulnerable adult, elder abuse and require appointment of a guardian or establishment of a conservatorship.
Probate litigation cases typically are disputes among family members or clashes arising from a family member attempting to protect an elderly or disabled relative. However, they could include attempts to recover money and property from a caregiver, “trusted advisor,” or a significant other. These highly emotional and sensitive subjects are handled with empathy, tact and expertise by our probate attorneys.
