St. Charles Probate Litigation Attorney

At the Law Office of Stephen A. Martin, we understand that many people have what they believe are simple estates, and therefore have wills that are basic in nature.

There are, however, even some very simple estates that would do well with a trust. These include individuals with minor children and elderly individuals.

Give us a call at 636-487-4097 to discuss your specific situation. From our office in St. Charles, we serve clients throughout the St. Louis area.

What Is The Main Issue In Your Dispute?

When a will is the only document available, probate is often necessary to ensure that the estate is closed properly, avoiding any future ancillary problems.

We have more than 25 years of experience in probate administration, including:

  • Asset distribution
  • Closing accounts/debt payment
  • Title transfers
  • Real estate transfers (other than family home)

In short, we are able to handle all issues of probate from the first filing to the close of the estate. We can also advise you on strategies to avoid probate.

A Word About Will Contests

There are many reasons why family members or other beneficiaries choose to contest a will. Some may believe they did not receive their rightful share of the estate, some may be concerned that another beneficiary was somehow overlooked.

Common reasons for will contests include undue influence, incompetence, mismanagement or invalidity. If you believe that there are legal issues surrounding the drafting or executing of the will, ensure your loved one's wishes by contacting an experienced, exceptional probate litigation attorney as soon as possible.
