Probate Litigation

Baton Rouge Probate Litigation Lawyers

In Louisiana, succession is the process whereby an individual's property and assets are distributed upon his or her death. "Succession," used interchangeably with "probate," requires that estate administrators and heirs act in accordance with legal requirements. When an individual does not act in accordance with probate laws, or when an individual encounters a dispute, it may be necessary to seek help from a lawyer.

Probate litigation can be complex as it balances both a legal component and a familial component. At The Cohn Law Firm LLC, our Baton Rouge probate litigation attorneys have developed substantial knowledge of probate laws and effective strategies for resolving probate disputes. Contact us online or call 225-754-9868 to meet with one of our attorneys to learn more.

Examples of Probate Disputes

Probate disputes can arise due to scenarios such as the following:

  • A family member or heir may suspect that a will was drafted or modified through undue influence. A will contest may arise because of this situation.
  • Heirs to the estate or other parties with claims to the property may not be able to reach an agreement regarding inheritance.
  • An individual who was given money in a trust may suspect that a trustee is not acting within the law or within the parameters of the trust as designated by the decedent.

Our will and trust litigation attorneys strive to find workable and successful solutions in a manner that avoids protracted litigation, keeps costs to a minimum and helps keep family relationships intact.
