Lombard Lawyer Representing Estate Beneficiaries

When you are named as a beneficiary of an estate or trust, you may be pleased to know that someone cared enough about you to make such a decision. In some cases, receiving the intended benefits may proceed without any problems; in others, however, there may be countless sources of frustration. At A. Traub & Associates, we appreciate the challenges you may be facing as you attempt to exercise your rights as a beneficiary. Our team is ready to help you work toward a reasonable resolution as quickly as possible without compromising your best interests.

Legal Counsel for Addressing Improper Estate Administration

As a beneficiary the estate of a deceased friend or relative, you must rely on the chosen executor to do his or her job properly. Sadly, many executors are not up to the task. They may be too busy, unaware of the seriousness of their responsibilities, or, worse, only interested in taking advantage of the situation. If poor or inappropriate estate administration is causing you trouble in receiving the assets or property promised to you, our experienced attorneys can provide legal guidance about your available options.

Will Contests and Disputed Documents in Illinois

In certain situations, it may be necessary for you to dispute the validity of a will or other estate planning document. For example, your loved one may have promised you specific consideration in his or her will, but during probate, a new will is discovered with suspicious changes to exclude you and other expected beneficiaries.

If you have reason to believe your loved one was unduly influenced or the documents in question do not accurately reflect his or her wishes, we can help. We will assist you in building a responsible case for contesting the will and restoring your rightful status as a beneficiary.
