Estate Controversies in Chicago

Litigation can be a difficult experience for clients. Controversies related to wills, trusts and probate are especially difficult because they often involve disputes among family members.

The Chicago will and trust contest lawyer of Sylvester Law Firm believes that efforts should be made to resolve estate-related controversies before involving the Court. However, if the "other side" is unwilling to "set things straight," then a lawsuit is appropriate and necessary, and it should be AGGRESSIVELY pursued without delay.

If you are involved in a trust or estate controversy, you need a Chicago, Cook County and Lake County will contest attorney who knows how anxiety ridden the litigation process can be, and who will be sensitive to your emotional and financial concerns.

You need an aggressive Chicago, Cook County and Lake County estate litigation attorney who will seek to keep costs of litigation to a minimum, and who will seek to resolve your case as efficiently as possible.

Of course, you also need a Chicago will contest lawyer who has a thorough understanding of the intricacies of wills, trusts and probate estates, and who will AGGRESSIVELY pursue your legal interests.

The Chicago will and trust contest attorney of Sylvester Law Firm is the right person to turn to when you are involved in any of the following or similar circumstances:

  • The executor or trustee has embezzled money.
  • There is a fight over who should serve as the executor.
  • The executor or trustee is favoring one beneficiary over another.
