Proven Lawyers In Estate Litigation

In Connecticut, the probate system handling the administration of estates is separate from the superior courts. The law firm of Szilagyi & Daly understands the specific laws and procedures relating to probate court and how to efficiently guide clients through the process.

Rated AV Preeminent* for legal ability and ethics, our lawyers are available to assist with every aspect of estate administration, from probating the will and gathering inventory to collecting and disposing of assets and filing state and federal estate tax returns. We also handle probate litigation involving:

  • Undue influence
  • Lack of mental capacity
  • Elective share
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Removal of personal representatives
  • Trust litigation
  • Will contests

Are You Facing A Will Contest?

Because the decedent is no longer present to testify about his or her wishes and the exact meaning of the will, disputes often arise between family members or other parties who believe they have a right to property or assets left behind. In most cases, wills are contested on grounds of undue influence or lack of capacity/mental incompetence.

If you believe that someone pressured or coerced your deceased loved one into signing a will, or if you suspect that your loved one's mental state prevented him or her from understanding the ramifications of the will, talk to our Hartford estate litigation attorneys.
