Probate and Administration Services

At the Leininger Law Firm, P.A. , we work to make sure that probate goes as smoothly as possible. Some of the work we do involves validating and enforcing the terms of the will, then transferring assets to those whom the will specifies. If your family member died without a will, we work with the surviving family members to locate and account for all the assets. We then distribute those assets according to Florida law.

Attorney Michael Leininger handles a variety of important issues, such as:

  • Filing for the appointment of an administrator, if needed
  • Collecting debts and paying the estate's bills
  • Re-titling assets
  • Paying medical and funeral expenses for the deceased
  • Handling tax issues
  • Trust administration

Although wills and trusts are drafted with care and designed to make asset distribution easier, there are times when someone goes to court to challenge the legitimacy of the document. This could be a family member who is upset because he or she did not receive anything under the will. There could be allegations that a trustee is not managing the trust correctly. At the Leininger Law Firm, we handle a variety of probate litigation, including:

  • Will contests
  • Trust litigation
  • Undue influence allegations
  • Challenges to the mental capacity of the person who made the will
