Even when someone dies with a well-formulated estate plan, there can still be a probate dispute, which leads to estate litigation.

Types of Estate Litigation
Interested parties can also challenge a will or trust based upon the actions of the personal representative or trustee. If an individual believes that the personal representative (executor) or trustee involved acted in bad faith or committed malfeasance or fraud, there may be a valid claim. Interested parties can also contest a will or trust based on the appraisal and distribution of assets.
