Working for Fair Outcomes in Difficult Conflicts
When a parent or another loved one dies, grief can give way to anger and resentment, and disputes can extend from kitchen tables to probate courts. Nobody takes pleasure in suing their own family members, particularly when they know the decedent wouldn't have wanted a fight to ensue. In some situations, though, the help of an attorney is needed in order to resolve estate conflicts.
At Godbey & Associates, we have been involved in estate and probate law for more than 20 years. We have been successful at resolving difficult estate matters because of our thorough understanding of the law and our ability to facilitate communication and fight for fair outcomes.
Cincinnati and Middletown Estate Dispute Litigation Lawyers
Whether you are a fiduciary or executor of an estate, we can help you protect your rights and find solutions to problems involving:
- Will contests and inheritance disputes
- Breach of fiduciary duty: Fiduciaries are obligated to administer an estate in a timely fashion and provide an accounting to a court. When these responsibilities are not met to the detriment of a family, or when non-fiduciaries are not kept abreast of important developments, we can help find solutions.
- Concealment of assets by the executor of an estate, such as a situation in which the executor mentions a house and a car but not cash assets
- Challenges related to family businesses
Estate disputes do not need to culminate in courtroom battles. In many situations, we are able to help parties discuss difficult matters and reach mutually acceptable outcomes without costly, stressful full-blown litigation.
