Areas of Practice
Not all estates must be probated. If there are few assets in the estate they can be distributed pursuant to the Will of the deceased, or under state law if there is no Will, without involving the courts. Even when you need to probate an estate, with or without a Will, most of the time the matters are routine, standard and uncontested.
Probate litigation comes into play when any legal contest is involved such as challenges to the Will’s validity, whether the Deceased was unduly influenced by a beneficiary, or when the original of a will cannot be located. Odds of requiring litigation increase when there are family issues between siblings, step-children, multiple marriages without pre-nuptial agreements and/or family dysfunction.
At Briley & Briley we can assist you in the distribution of your loved one’s estate whether by probating an estate or pursuing litigation when applicable.
The legal definition of a personal injury is “an injury not to property, but to the body, mind, or emotions.”
For example, if you are involved in an automobile collision your personal injuries would include your physical injuries such as a broken arm, back strain, etc. as well as your emotional injuries such as an unreasonable fear of riding in an automobile, nightmares, counseling, etc. However the damage to your automobile would not be a personal injury. You would have to rely on property damage coverage to repair that damage.
The attorneys at Briley & Briley, along with their staff, stand ready to assist you with your personal injury issues.
