Florida Will & Probate Litigation

Boca Raton Civil Litigation Attorney

Probate is the process of paying a deceased individual's debts and distributing their assets. This is profoundly affected by whether or not the deceased left a will. If disputes arise over the legitimacy of a will in the state of Florida, members of the deceased individual's family might contest the will, temporarily halting the probate process.

Two common grounds for will contest are lack of mental capacity and undue influence - meaning the will's author was coerced into distributing his / her estate a certain way. If the deceased did not leave a will, other issues might arise such as disputes over the identity of the court-appointed personal trust representative, who the heirs of a property should be, and how much each heir should receive.

It is wise to retain a proven Boca Raton civil litigation attorney who can protect your interests. The probate process is often long, arduous, and emotionally draining. In addition to the duties of meeting with your family members and working with the creditors of the deceased to pay back their loans, you may have questions about such issues as the tax implications of the estate, your fiduciary duties, and the rights of a surviving spouse of the deceased.

An experienced and knowledgeable probate litigation attorney can help you understand these issues, advise you as to your rights, stand beside you in court if necessary, finish necessary paperwork on your behalf, and stand by your side throughout the probate process to answer your questions and keep an eye on your interests.

Our Client's Testimonials

  • Dedicated and Professional Legal Representation

    “I had a personal injury and needed legal advice and assistance. After seeing all the advertisements and the unflattering commentary about Personal Injury Attorneys I was very cautious. I needed coverage for my medical bills and had no desire to get rich. John put me at ease from the beginning. He said in no uncertain terms that if I was there to get rich he would not represent me. Instead John and his excellent assistant Helene were professional and treated me as if I was their only case. Their guidance through complicated insurance claims and negotiations with the medical billing offices allowed me to concentrate on recovering from my injury. No, I did not get rich. but my claim was effectively and reasonably resolved and I could not have made it with out John and Helene. Anyone seeking dedicated and professional legal representation, Willis Law will be an excellent choice!”

  • Well-prepared, On-time and Responsive

    “I have found John to be the most professional attorney exhibiting legal s kills and integrity beyond my expectations. He handled my son's Pl case with great results also. My case was water damage, mold and permanent injury. He researched and argued for my case on a monthly basis, it seemed, for over 3 years. Anything that was thrown at us by the most unprofessional defense attorneys, he was able to take before the judge and resolve the problem. It was a difficult case but he maintained ethical decision making and etiquette throughout. He was always well prepared, on time and responsive. John is well- respected in the community. He was very supportive with me in a positive but practical manner. John was always looking for the best ways to resolve the case. His negotiating skills are phenomenal. He has strength that won't back down to anyone. I believe that all his fine qualities, his professionalism, integrity, s strength, legal knowledge and ability to project that knowledge clearly - written and verbal - are the reasons he is so successful. I am proud to have had John Willis represent me. I am pleased with the settlement he negotiated. I would recommend John to represent any case, if he takes it he will do his best. And that is great!!!”

  • They relieved my stress and worry immediately.

    “Mr. Willis managed my case with effectiveness, efficiency, and with kindness. After the initial contact, Mr. Willis and his secretary, Helene, made it so that I never had to make another phone call or supply any further information. They relieved my stress and worry immediately, and that continued throughout to the conclusion of my case. Both Mr. Willis and Helene were accessible, caring, and responded to my questions quickly. I never had any doubt that they knew me and my case thoroughly. They were professional and kind, and I left any encounter with them feeling uplifted. In summary, I highly recommend Willis Law, P.A. for legal counsel. It is a relief to find a lawyer who is trustworthy, skilled, hardworking, and caring.”

  • John Willis is wonderful.

    “John Willis is wonderful. I couldn't never thank him enough for helping me with my case. Working with John Willis and his paralegal Helene was an amazing experience. I got in a car wreck and needed medical attention afterwards. As soon as the doctors office made their claim to the insurance company my phone started blowing up. I was not at fault for the wreck but I felt like I did something wrong by the way the insurance company's kept calling me with 20 questions and repeatedly asking me the same questions over and over again. Deciding to ask for John Willis for help was the best decision I could have made. I know my case was not an easy one but that did not stop them for fighting to get me the best outcome they could. I would so recommend Willis Law, PA without any hesitation. I loved knowing I had someone like him looking out for me and if the day were to ever come again that I found myself in need of some help, he would be the first person I would call.
