An Experienced Approach To Resolving Probate Disputes

The probate process exists to ensure that estate assets are transferred in an orderly manner after a person dies. However, probate disputes do arise, particularly if there are challenges to the will, there is no will, or complex assets such as a business are involved.

At Stephen J. Buhler, Attorney at Law, we help individuals and families in the Salt Lake area resolve matters of contested probate. We seek cost-efficient solutions for all of the following:

  • Will contests
  • Disputes over who should receive which assets
  • Disputes over the naming of an executor
  • Disputed creditor claims
  • Disputes over the management of the estate

We represent heirs and beneficiaries, as well as executors.

Protecting Assets In The Midst Of Conflict

Probate litigation can be costly, and even a minor dispute, if not handled properly, can cause significant diminishment of estate assets. We work with our clients not only to preserve estate assets in the midst of conflict; we do what we can to preserve family relationships that might otherwise be damaged by the dispute.

If the conflict cannot be resolved outside of court, we can aggressively protect your interests through probate litigation. In each case, our goal is to resolve the matter in the most cost-efficient way possible.
