Areas of Practice
Sometimes an estate plan is drafted poorly, or there isn’t an estate plan at all. Even if you’re fairly confident that the person settling your loved one’s estate is attempting to act honestly, you may feel you aren’t receiving the inheritance you were intended to receive. The Grossman Law Firm has helped many beneficiaries in successful California probate litigation and trust litigation cases.
The probate process can be confusing for anyone set to inherent from an estate, as well as the person appointed to settle it. Trustees and executors can feel overwhelmed by deadlines, frustrated beneficiaries, court dates, and asset management. Let the California trust attorneys at The Grossman Law Firm, APC help you, whether you’re a trustee, executor, administrator, heir or beneficiary.
Sometimes when a loved one passes away they either have not created an estate plan, or someone in charge is not following the estate plan they set out. This can be very stressful, and heirs then often do not get the full inheritance to which they were entitled. Often there are problems after a family member’s death, either through miscommunication or an intentionally not sharing information with the beneficiaries.
