Probate
Estate litigation can arise in several different ways. This is true even when the estate is planned carefully.
When someone dies, sometimes the pain of loss can be made worse by conflict about the estate. But as difficult as this may be, it's important to protect your interests fully until issues are resolved.

At Berger & Kindberg Law, our attorneys know how to sort out these disputes effectively, in ways that make sense for our clients. We encourage you to give us a call today at our Charlotte area office to discuss your specific situation.

Our law firm is experienced in a full range of cases, including those involving:

Will contests
Fiduciary incompetence or misconduct
Trustee or executor removal
Contested probate

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Because we are well-versed in this area of the law, we have the versatility to represent either beneficiaries or fiduciaries, depending on the case.

In some cases, aggressive litigation is unavoidable. In others, skillful negotiation can resolve the dispute favorably for our client. Using our extensive knowledge of probate and estate matters, we will pursue the most favorable outcome for your particular circumstances.

We are well-aware of how sensitive estate litigation can be. Other these cases pit family member against family member, in heartbreaking ways.

Our law firm has the subtlety to navigate these strong emotions in ways that recognize the human dimension while still insisting on respect for our clients' rights.

As proud as we are of our professional expertise, we bring unique personal qualities and approaches to our jobs, such as:

We turn problems into opportunities.
We add value to any situation.
We dedicate at least one of our skilled lawyer's efforts to your matter. That attorney will be your point of contact throughout.
We insist on maximum availability to you, and return all messages promptly.
We combine the traditions of law with high-tech methods to create workable solutions.
We are determined to get to the "finish line" of your matter. For instance, in real estate transactions, we say "If it can close, we can close it."
