Contested Probate

Ohio Contested Probate and Trust Litigation

Sometimes probate estate executors / administrators and Trustees must be held accountable for their actions. Winkler Legal has significant experience in holding self-serving executors and trustees accountable.

Ohio estate executors / administrators (those responsible for administering a probate estate) and trustees (those responsible for administering a trust) have a fiduciary duty (the highest legal duty under the law) to act in the best interests of beneficiaries.  However, when executors / administrators and trustees fail to meet their fiduciary responsibilities Ohio laws allow beneficiaries to seek redress at court. In Ohio, estate and trust beneficiaries can sue for failing to keep beneficiaries informed, for failing to account for assets and expenses, for converting estate or trust assets for personal use, and for outright theft, among other actions. Ohio executors / administrators and trustees are required to provide beneficiaries enough information to enable them to protect their beneficial interest. If you are a beneficiary of an estate or trust and are not getting answers to your questions, contact Winkler Legal to see if taking legal action is the right action for you.

Let Winkler Legal’s probate and trust litigation experience make things right for you.
