Will Contests

Our probate lawyers can represent either an heir or the estate in will contest litigation involving the terms of the will, the status of an heir, or the testamentary capacity of the decedent. Our familiarity with state and federal probate and tax law also enables us to help resolve problems concerning the character of particular assets: Were they transferred by gift during life, were they duly transferred into trust, or are they property of the estate to pass by will? We can also represent either an heir or the personal representative in disputes concerning the administration of the estate and any problems relating to breach of fiduciary duty.

Trust Litigation

Whether you’re a trustee or a beneficiary, our Georgia trust litigation attorneys can represent your interests in a lawsuit concerning the administration of a trust, the sufficiency of an accounting, or title to ostensible trust assets. We represent parties to trust litigation who live out of state as well as local trustees or trust beneficiaries.

Estate Tax Litigation

The attorneys of Aitkens & Aitkens, P.C. represent executors, administrators, trustees, heirs, and beneficiaries in estate tax disputes with the IRS, U.S. Department of Justice, or the Georgia Department of Revenue. We analyze and evaluate the validity of assessments, liens, notices, judgments, foreclosure actions, and garnishments to determine their enforceability under federal or state law. Even when valid, estate tax liabilities can often be mitigated in the course of settlement negotiations by seeking to eliminate or reduce interest and penalties as well as an abatement of the tax.

Guardians and Conservator Representation

Our experience with probate litigation and familiarity with Georgia guardianship law enable us to provide reliable advice and representation in matters concerning the appointment or performance of guardians and conservators to manage the physical care or property of the elderly, the incapacitated, or minors who hold or inherit substantial property in their own name.
