Do I need a probate litigation attorney in South Carolina?

We are different from estate planning and elder law attorneys in that we are litigators. Attorneys who draft wills, trusts, powers of attorney and other estate planning documents usually have expertise in estate planning and tax matters and may lack the ability to litigate probate cases in court. Our Beaufort probate lawyers are comfortable in the courtroom and have the trial experience to protect your interests in court.

What is probate litigation?

Probate litigation consists of legal disputes about issues related to aging, disability, death and the disbursement of estate assets. It involves litigation over those still alive, such as guardianships and conservatorships, as well as legal fights over powers of attorney, joint bank accounts, beneficiary designations and living wills. It also includes legal challenges when someone has passed on, including cases involving wills, trusts, estates and asset disputes.

Contested wills and estates are legally complex and often emotionally fraught matters. Even the decision of whether to contest probate proceedings is difficult. Time is of the essence, too – while it’s sometimes possible to contest an estate after probate, it’s much more difficult and costly, if you can do it at all. The sooner you get an experienced probate attorney on your side, the better.
