Probate and Estate Administration

As one may suspect, many times probate matters are contested and result in litigation. Many probate attorneys, although highly skilled in the probate and estate area, find themselves overwhelmed when a matter is contested. At Tamkin & Hochberg, we have extensive experience assisting individuals with contentious matters, such as:

  • Will contests;
  • Undue influence and incapacity claims;
  • Interference with inheritance rights;
  • Fraud;
  • Creditor disputes;
  • Trust disputes;
  • Family partnership disputes; and
  • Fiduciary or trustee misconduct.

We represent parties in all Massachusetts courts, including the Fiduciary Litigation Section of the Probate Court and our attorneys regularly serve as appointed Guardian Ad Litem under Category D of the Probate and Family Court rules.
