Nashville Will Dispute Attorney

Protecting Personal Rights and the Estate in Tennessee

It is not uncommon for a death in the family to result in a dispute over a will or in the execution of an estate. Probate is the court proceeding through which a will is proved to be valid and the estate of a decedent is administered. The process, generally, includes collecting a decedent's assets, liquidating liabilities, paying necessary taxes, and distribution of property to heirs.

Whether you are a beneficiary, a personal representative or you are a family member with an interest, it is important to consult with an experienced legal advocate about your rights. At Sobel, Poss & Moore in Nashville, Tennessee, our legal team is experienced in handling the probate process and will disputes on behalf of our clients and their families.
