Probate Litigation

Minnesota Estate Litigation Attorneys

When a loved one dies, even if they left a well-constructed estate plan to govern the division of their estate, disputes can arise. There can be concerns about the state of mind of the decedent when the will or trust was prepared, or whether there was undue influence.
