In recent years, the firm has been engaged to represent clients in family litigation that is not divorce. The death, or determination of incompetency, of a family member may trigger unexpected disputes as to the disposition of generational wealth. Disputes can also arise with respect to the extent of care to be provided to a family member determined to be incompetent, or as to the identity of a caregiver in this circumstance.
These are all difficult issues that are naturally infused with emotion. The experience of the lawyers at Skirbunt & Skirbunt, LLC in divorce litigation has proven invaluable in sorting through the issues that arise in a will contest, a challenge to a guardianship application, or a conservatorship. The firm has been successful in representing clients in these matters and brings the same thoughtful and creative practice philosophy into the probate arena.
