Cranston Trial Attorney Handling Rhode Island Probate Litigation

Representing beneficiaries, executors and trustees

  • Do you suspect that there is a problem with a will that names you as one of the beneficiaries?
  • Do you think a trustee or the executor of an estate acted improperly?
  • Did a sibling or another inheritor unlawfully removed money from the bank account of the deceased?
  • Did someone unduly influence a vulnerable senior citizen to change his or her will before death?

These are just a few examples of the kinds of case that can only be resolved with probate litigation. Probate litigation addresses problems relating to a will or trust, an estate, or the guardianship of underage or incompetent persons.

While the actions that are being called into question may constitute a crime, a judge in a civil case cannot hand down a criminal sentence. The resolution you can achieve in civil court will likely involve the exchange of money or a change in guardianship or trusteeship.

When you have been treated unfairly in a will, or when a loved one is being financially abused or is in jeopardy from the actions of a guardian, you need firepower in the courtroom.
