Handling Probate Litigation

When an estate planning document is contested or the interpretation of the document is under question, it may be necessary to involve the courts. But as so many learn, the probate process is not entirely intuitive. It requires an extensive understanding of the law and even more experience applying it to each client's unique situation.

At Ransmeier & Spellman P.C., we have that experience, having handled hundreds of probate cases over the last three decades. Though we consider ourselves to be a general practice law firm, we can handle a wide variety of probate issues stemming from estate planning matters. And because we are permitted to practice throughout New Hampshire and New England, our attorneys can represent individuals and institutions that need help with:

  • The contesting of a will or trust

  • Interpretation, administration and management of trust instruments
  • Reformation or modification of trust instruments
  • Termination of a trust
  • Issues arising from durable powers of attorney
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
