In Probate Litigation, Time Is Of The Essence

If you think that the administration of a person's estate has been mishandled, that the will or trust was drafted improperly, or that an individual exercised undue influence over a vulnerable adult in order to change a will, you must speak to an attorney immediately. It is important to act quickly before an estate has been administered. You can lose your chance of ever setting things right if you miss the statute of limitations.

At Galloway and Collens, PLLC, we will act quickly to ensure that any mistakes made during will and trust administration are corrected and that you receive what you are rightly owed. Valid complaints receive assertive action from attorneys who are sensitive to the emotional tensions involved. To schedule an appointment, contact our Macomb County firm online or call 248-397-5507.
