Massachusetts Probate Court Lawyers
The executor or executrix of an estate has a fiduciary duty to properly conduct the probate process. When he or she does not do so, the beneficiaries of an estate can take legal action against the executor or executrix.
A probate dispute or will contest is usually highly emotional and often brings long-suppressed sibling resentments to the surface. From a legal perspective, probate litigation cases can be complex and challenging. These types of cases require extensive analysis, careful preparation, and skilled presentation.
At Colucci Colucci Marcus & Flavin, PC, we have more than 20 years of experience in complex cases and contentious litigation. We are strong advocates who carefully prepare each case and aggressively seek results for our clients. Our firm represents plaintiffs and defendants in probate disputes.

Determined to Succeed
Probate litigation cases usually involve disputes over how the executor/executrix collected the estate's assets and distributed them according to the wishes of the decedent, as expressed in the will. Other disputes can involve allegations that the executor/executrix took too much time to finish the process, incurred needless expenses during the probate process, or needlessly caused the dissipation of the estate's assets.

ADR and Litigation
We have found that the prospects for success in a civil litigation case are enhanced by thoroughly preparing the case as if it were going to trial. That said, our firm often utilizes negotiation or mediation to achieve results for our clients. These techniques are cost-effective and can serve to reduce family conflicts. If your decision is to move forward with a lawsuit, Colucci Colucci Marcus & Flavin, PC will vigorously seek results for you in the courtroom.
