Probate Litigation - Litigation

The attorneys in McLane Middleton's Probate Litigation Practice Group draw on their extensive experience to effectively litigate matters affecting the rights of the aging population and their heirs. We are well-versed in all types of probate litigation matters, handling such cases as:

  • Will contests
  • Petitions for Guardianships
  • Petitions for Accounting (to investigate and redress wrongs committed by an attorney-in-fact operating under a power of attorney)
  • Trust disputes
  • Petitions for Civil Commitment
  • Common law marriage and related tax issues

When necessary, our team can respond quickly, such as when assets of an aging family member are being depleted due to impaired judgment or exploitation.

Our attorneys are recognized leaders in probate litigation. For example, David Wolowitz is a pioneer advocate relating to mental illness and incapacity. He has advised clients on this area of law since 1975. He has also provided expert testimony on mental health issues related to probate litigation matters.

In addition to our advocacy skills, we understand the complex mental health issues related to aging. We have working relationships with geriatric psychiatrists and other medical and mental health professionals. We are sensitive to family dynamics and the unique pressures faced by families working hard to protect aging family members and their assets.
