Protecting Your Inheritance During Disputes
When a loved one has passed away and a dispute arises regarding his or her estate, litigation among family members is certainly the last thing that most heirs would want to see. Unfortunately, this type of litigation does occur. Attorney Marios N. Karayannis has handled a number of estate disputes, including:
- Undue influence by a caretaker
- Will contests
- Guardianship disputes
- Theft of assets by an administrator
- Financial abuse by a person holding a power of attorney
Seeking prompt settlement in these cases early on usually benefits the entire family. Prolonged litigation is expensive and can cause lasting resentment among family members. Our goal in estate litigation is the preserve the value of the estate while equitably resolving differences among heirs and beneficiaries, in accordance with what the deceased would have wanted. Our law office is in Geneva, and we represent administrators, heirs and beneficiaries in Kane, DuPage, Cook, Kendall, DeKalb and McHenry counties and the surrounding areas.
