Probate Litigation

Posternock Apell, PC's probate attorneys can help you.

Probate litigation is common, despite the general distaste that most people have for such disputes. When most people think of estate-related disputes, they imagine a difficult beneficiary (or multiple beneficiaries) arguing over their inheritance — each beneficiary hoping to take more for themselves. However, this is not entirely inconsistent with reality. Certainly, disputes between heirs do happen, but probate litigation represents a greater breadth of issues than conflicts over the distribution of estate assets.

Probate is already a complex process, with formal procedures, duties, and requirements in place for the Personal Representative. Here at Posternock Apell, PC, we strive to make the probate process as smooth as possible so that the estate can be closed out within a reasonable amount of time and the full assets can be distributed to the desired beneficiaries, as intended by the testator. If you are involved in probate litigation, or if you are concerned that there will be a probate dispute, we encourage you to get in touch with our firm today,

Our probate attorneys can support clients across New Jersey

Here at Posternock Apell, PC, we believe that effective representation in probate litigation requires that an attorney actively looks for opportunities to secure a favorable resolution to the dispute through mediation (i.e., a negotiated settlement). In the event that negotiations break down, however, we are prepared to act as relentless advocates on behalf of our clients. We are able to argue the case in court where other firms might be less prepared or lack the “fire” to truly litigate the claims at issue.


We have built a reputation as aggressive attorney-advocates, and, as such, we often have additional leverage during early negotiations with opposing counsel. Although you have many options for legal representation in New Jersey, it is important that you work with a team of attorneys who are truly capable of handling the evolution of a probate dispute through every stage of the process, no matter how difficult or hostile the circumstances may be.
