Queens Estate Litigation

If you’ve ever experienced the passing of a loved one, you know the importance of having a knowledgeable Queens Estate Litigation Lawyer by your side to help you through the process of probate. When the intentions a deceased loved one are clearly stated on a legal document, the probate and estate administration process can go smoothly. In most situations, however, this is not the case. In Queens, the probate process can be delayed by conflicts between relatives or others that are responsible for the estate, resulting in the need for a Queens Estate Litigation Lawyer.

During the process of estate probate, the individual responsible for the estate, called the Fiduciary, may need a Queens Estate Litigation Lawyer to defend against legal suits brought on by disappointed inheritors who may question the actions that have been taken regarding the estate. In this type of situation, a Queens Estate Litigation Lawyer from Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC will be needed to prepare an appropriate defense strategy.

When a Will is contested in Queens, the Fiduciary can be caught in the middle of the two arguing parties. The estates executor may be accused of negligent wrongdoing and in some cases this individual may be called to testify in a New York Probate Court. If you are an estate Fiduciary and are being challenged by another party, you will need the assistance of an Estate Litigation Lawyer who knows the Queens Probate process.

The distribution of a loved one’s estate and assets in Queens can be disputed by suspicious family members who may feel their rights have been disregarded. A beneficiary of the estate can also sue for increased inheritances including a spouse's right of election. A Queens Estate Litigation Lawyer from the opposing side may challenge your actions and ask for a detailed explanation.

Your Queens Estate Litigation Lawyer should help guide you through these challenges and also advise you on time restrictions for pursuing legal action. In New York, these time restrictions can be days and weeks rather than months and years. An Estate Litigation Lawyer from our office can assist you with these situations, and help arm you with the information you need to defend your actions.

Client Reviews
Mr. Bilkis handled both my father and mother's estate issues through very difficult times he was compassionate kind and understanding. In fact the whole firm showed great empathy. Despite the emotional hard time we were having that quickly and efficiently handle all the matters that were necessary to get us the result we desired. Can't recommend them enough. B.B.
From the very first phone call to Stephen Bilkis' office, the staff was extremely polite and helpful in assisting me. Mr. Bilkis was honest and upfront with me from the beginning in what he projected the outcome of my case would be; in the end we got better results than either of us anticipated. He was very genuine and compassionate in understanding my situation and how this legal matter could effect not only myself but my family as well. I highly recommend this law firm and will most definitely continue using them for any future legal needs. Jarrett
