Accomplished Georgia Attorney Handles Estate Disputes and Litigation
Experienced lawyer represents Atlanta-area executors and beneficiaries
Disagreements that arise during the administration of a will add stress and expense to an already difficult time. To handle such disputes, let an experienced probate attorney provide the support you need to enforce the decedent’s wishes. At James N. Cline, P.C. in Roswell, I have assisted Atlanta-area clients in probate litigation and other estate matters for more than 20 years. Whether you are an executor, administrator, heir or potential beneficiary, my firm will work diligently to secure the result you seek in a prompt, professional manner.
Skilled Roswell advocate advises on all types of probate conflicts
- Wrongful interference with an inheritance — Often, people draft or revise wills when they are in a vulnerable position either physical or financially. If someone allegedly used fraud or undue influence to alter the testator’s true intentions, my firm can seek a decision that corrects the outcome.
- Improper conduct by an executor or administrator — The personal representative of an estate has a fiduciary duty to abide by the law and enforce the decedent’s instructions. I advise clients in cases where executors or administrators are accused of breaching this responsibility. If you believe that estate assets are being misused or required information is being withheld, my firm can explain your rights and legal options.
- Unwarranted will contests — Not everyone is pleased when the terms of a will are revealed. Unfortunately, people who feel that they did not receive a sufficient inheritance sometimes try to pressure executors and beneficiaries through litigation. My firm takes on unwarranted claims and works diligently to resolve the case promptly so that estate assets are not wasted.
- Attempting to file a fraudulent will — Wills can take many forms, especially when they are created without qualified legal guidance, leading to documents that were not legally executed or authorized. Even if you only suspect that a will being filed is incorrect, I can act immediately to uncover the truth.
I have more than 20 years as a probate and estate planning attorney and can guide you toward a favorable resolution no matter how complex or difficult your case might seem.
