PROBATE AND ADMINISTRATION

EXPERT GUIDANCE DURING A DIFFICULT TIME

After a loved one has passed away, the probate and administration of his or her estate are carried out promptly. In Rhode Island, probate procedures are varied and often complicated. The lawyers at Figliola and Romano have the experience in probate and administration matters which is invaluable when navigating these procedures. We listen to your concerns and make the probate process understandable to you.

PROBATE AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

Our firm has the advantage of providing our clients with the counsel of probate Judge Samuel Fleisig, who oversees probate matters in East Greenwich. This unique resource gives our clients access to current and changing trends in the probate process.

The distribution of a well-planned estate is usually expedited when an estate and/or trust administrator has been designated. However, in some cases, disputes may arise regarding guardianships, conservators, poor administration or other disagreements. In these situations, it is necessary to seek the counsel of a probate litigator.

REPUTABLE LITIGATION ATTORNEYS

Even when families get along, sometimes estate distributions can cause disagreements. When these disputes arise, it is vital that the attorney you secure understands the minutia of the local probate court. As experienced and active trial lawyers, our attorneys are familiar with these details and are capable of handling many estate litigation matters, including:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Claims against estates
  • Guardianship disputes
  • Elder law disputes
  • Estate distribution disputes
  • Family estate disputes
  • Undue influence
  • Wills and trusts contests

If you are involved in an estate litigation matter, your interests should be fully protected by an attorney devoted to intelligent and strategic solutions. Even small matters can turn into large problems when entrusted to an attorney unfamiliar with this area of law.
