The Law Offices of Irwin D. Tubman, LLC

The task of administering an estate can yield strong emotions and unexpected surprises, especially if a family member or outside party is seeking to contest the will. If you need to probate or contest a will, or administer an estate, or if you believe someone has inappropriately taken assets from an estate, we at the Law Offices of Irwin D. Tubman, LLC, can assist you through the estate litigation process.

Comprehensive Probate and Estate Representation

We assist clients with all types of probate and estate litigation matters, including:

  • Allegations of undue influence
  • Allegations of a lack of capacity
  • Allegations of inadequate or improper administration of the estate
  • Creditor actions against the estate
  • Actions by family members to contest a will
  • Accusations that someone with power of attorney has wrongfully transferred money into his or her bank account

Preserving Your Property and Assets

Sometimes when a person dies, his or her assets may be lost or transferred to people other than the named beneficiaries. We will take immediate legal action to identify and preserve the assets. We will then pursue emergency measures to stop any wrongful transfer of assets and bring them back under the power of the executor or administrator of the estate.

In probate and estate litigation matters, both the assets of the estate and the deceased person’s wishes are at stake. The Law Offices of Irwin D. Tubman, LLC, has the knowledge and experience needed to resolve disputes promptly and effectively. While we will not hesitate to pursue litigation when necessary, we also know when it is appropriate to act otherwise.

If litigated, these matters are placed before a specifically designated judge in each county. We have extensive experience practicing before most of them.
