Skilled Litigation Representation For Your Probate And Real Estate Disputes
Not all problems can be resolved amicably. At the Forsyth County law firm of Neville & Cunat, LLP, our lawyers are here to help individuals throughout Georgia. When you have exhausted your options, we can help you take your case to court to secure the resolution you need. Our skill as litigators provides a real advantage to our clients who are facing probate or real estate disputes.
Resolving Probate Disputes
When an estate is going through the probate process, any irregularities, perceived or real, can create highly contentious disputes that may only be resolved through litigation. The personal representative of the estate has a fiduciary duty to the heirs and beneficiaries of the estate. A fiduciary duty means that the representative needs to act in the best interest of the heirs and beneficiaries. Violations of a fiduciary duty can create personal liability for the representative.
We represent personal representatives who are seeking to defend themselves against accusations of impropriety. We also represent heirs and beneficiaries who feel there has been a breach of fiduciary duty or some other issue that needs the assistance of the court to resolve. We also represent persons in disputes concerning joint bank accounts and ownership of estate assets.
Residential And Commercial Real Estate Litigation
Title defects and other issues can cause tremendous difficulties in residential and commercial real estate transactions. If a deed is improperly done or there was some problem with the chain of title, claims may exist for recovery of the property or it may be necessary to seek the aid of the court to quiet title to the property. Additionally, disputes often arise among co-owners of property.
We represent property owners and buyers and sellers in situations where a real estate transaction cannot be resolved without court assistance.
General Civil Litigation
In addition to probate and real estate litigation, our firm offers skilled trial representation on a wide range of other civil litigation matters. Let us put our strength as litigators to work helping you effectively resolve whatever dispute you are currently facing.
