Protecting Your Interests In Probate Litigation

After an individual passes away, his or her estate is submitted to probate. During the probate administration process, disputes may arise. Unfortunately, these disputes often involve family members and can quickly become heated, high-conflict legal battles.

At Porcello Law Offices, our lawyers provide clients with the experience, litigation expertise and guidance needed to obtain a successful outcome, by resolution or at trial, in probate litigation. Since the late 1970's, many Essex County families relied upon Attorney A. John Porcello to achieve effective and practical solutions for their family litigation disputes. That tradition of exceptional legal representation, continues today with his children, Attorney Jean Porcello-Giusto and Attorney Anthony S. Porcello and their associates, Senior Associate Attorney Lindsey A. Dulkis Patten, and Junior Associate Attorneys Heather L. Murphy and Jacqueline L. Swift.

Probate Litigation And Estate Disputes

Probate litigation not only involves money, time and legal rights, but family dynamics and personal relationships are also at stake. At Porcello Law Offices, we work hard to protect our clients' rights and resolve their disputes as efficiently as possible.

Attorney Anthony S. Porcello has more than 25 years of general civil litigation experience. He is skilled both in and out of the courtroom, and uses proven litigation strategies in protecting our client's rights and prosecuting their claims relative to their probate litigation cases. Over the years, our firm has successfully represented clients in a wide variety of probate litigation actions, including will contests, trust disputes and fiduciary misconduct cases.

When executors, trustees, health care or financial agents and other fiduciaries abuse their powers, lengthy and expensive litigation can often ensue. At Porcello Law Offices, we have experience representing fiduciaries and those challenging fiduciary action. We use every legal tool at our disposal to protect our clients' financial and legal interests and shield them from personal liability.
