Probate and Estate Litigation

Independence, Missouri, Estate Litigation Lawyer

The death or incapacity of a family member can be a very emotional time. It can also be a time when your financial interests need to be protected.

At Grubb Law Firm, P.C., in Independence, Missouri, I am prepared to vigorously protect the interests of my clients in cases such as will contests and theft of assets. I represent personal representatives, guardians, conservators, agents under a power of attorney, heirs and beneficiaries. I offer a free initial consultation to listen to your concerns and answer your questions.

The following are examples of the types of probate litigation I handle:

  • Disputes over the validity of a will due to issues such as undue influence, fraud, lack of proper execution and lack of testamentary capacity
  • Theft of assets from the estate by a person with fiduciary responsibility (such as a personal representative, conservator, guardian or agent under a power)
  • Fraudulent transfers of real estate and other assets
  • Disputes over creditor claims
  • Petitions of discovery to find out where assets went

Sadly, it's not unusual for individuals to abscond with the assets of an estate or to submit fraudulent claims when a person becomes incapacitated or dies. It may take a lawyer's help to ensure that your rights are protected.

I serve clients in Independence, Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, Grain Valley and other communities in Jackson County and western Missouri. I also represent clients in other states who are dealing with probate courts in Missouri.
