Proving Your Claim

When an account holder passes and leaves significant debts behind, locating the details on the estate and proving your claim is essential. Other parties also may have a claim, so completing your proof of claim and filing in a timely manner will help resolve the process more efficiently. Our attorneys have completed this process for a wide range of different estates and lenders. We’ll take every action necessary to prove your claim and ensure lawful recovery.

Negotiating with Claimants and Representatives

Decedent estates often have multiple interested parties. Negotiating with each of these groups and individuals in an orderly manner will help resolve the situation efficiently. Our probate attorneys will respond to, manage, and mediate with each party, including personal representatives of the decedent, estate attorneys, courts, and other creditors and claimants. We will respond to and petition these parties appropriately and ensure that your interests are securely represented. With probate litigation in the hands of experienced attorneys, you can mark this item off your list and spend time on more important matters.
