BERGMAN & JACOBS - Attorneys at Law

Probate & Guardianship Litigation

Probate litigation involves legal issues with the administration of assets, or another part of the probate process. These legal issues may include: contested wills, trust litigation, disputes among beneficiaries, disputes over adult/child guardianship, and more.


Bergman & Jacobs has extensive trial experience in matters related to estate, probate and trust litigation. Our firm has represented beneficiaries, personal representatives, trustees, and other interested persons throughout Florida. Our firm has handled matters that include:

  • Challenges to the validity of a will or trust based on the competency of the person making the will or trust

  • Issues involving whether a fiduciary has breached his or her duties to the estate, trust or other beneficiaries

  • Challenges to the validity of a will or trust based upon undue influence shown over the decedent prior to death


At Bergman & Jacobs, our attorneys also provide counsel and representation to family members seeking to assist loved ones who are facing incapacitating illnesses, advancing age, or disabilities and are unable to manage care or finances. It is often in a moment of crisis that failures in, or in the absence of advanced directives, become known. In this situation, the Courts will help to fill that void through the creating of a guardianship or conservatorship.

"At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from
law and justice he is the worst."
