At the Law Office of Daniel K. Printz, we do much more than help clients plan estates, probate wills and advise trust administrators. When probate and trust disputes arise, we stand ready as experienced and knowledgeable trial lawyers ready to represent either party in a will contest or a conflict over a trust document.

We handle all types of probate and trust disputes. We can help you:

  • Contest a will: if there are charges of undue influence and lack of capacity
  • Challenge an executor or administrator: when the dispute involves how an estate is being administrated, breach of fiduciary duty, or a petition to remove a particular administrator or executor
  • Challenge a trust or trustee: when the dispute involves trust terms or construction, breach of fiduciary duty, or a petition to remove a trustee
  • Contest a proposed guardianship or conservatorship
  • Advice on applicability of “no-contest clauses”

The need to contest a will and the sources of other probate disputes vary. An excluded beneficiary may need to litigate to obtain his or her rightful portion of an estate. Heirs may believe an executor may be attempting to distribute estate assets in a way that violates the terms of a will. Regardless of the situation, a dispute over an estate is emotional – never easy.

We understand the stress and frustration involved when you have to decide whether to contest a will, a trust, or a fiduciary. We know how upsetting it is when you move forward with litigation against family members and close friends. At the Law Office of Daniel K. Printz, we work compassionately with our clients and aggressively represent their interests throughout the process of a will contest or probate litigation.

We also handle guardianship and conservatorship litigation. This type of case arises from objections to the guardianship or conservatorship petition by the proposed protected person.
