Probate Lawyers in Sevierville
Estate administration & probate litigation in Tennessee
Probate generally refers to the general administering of a deceased person’s will or the estate of a deceased person without a will. A planned probate process avoids unnecessary delays and preserves assets for the heirs. When probate is mismanaged, assets remain frozen as legal fees eat away at the value of the estate. We provide legal services to estate administrators and beneficiaries to ensure that a testator’s intentions are implemented, the laws of succession are followed and valid claims on the estate are honored.
We can help with:
- Claims against estates
- Estate administration
- Intestate representation
- Probate litigation
- Will challenges

Probate Litigation & Will Challenge Attorneys
The purpose of probate is to settle valid claims against the estate and transfer property to beneficiaries according to the wishes of the deceased. Questions may arise about the validity of the will and any suspicious modifications. It is not unusual for people with access to aging people to apply pressure to change a will or eliminate legitimate heirs. These same people may also attempt to transfer assets illegally by abusing a power of attorney. In these situations, the will no longer accurately reflects the testator’s true intentions. Our firm represents heirs whose inheritance has been diverted ruthlessly to an illegitimate recipient.
