“A lot of times we’ll get a call from a client who says, ‘I know the will was filed, and we haven’t been paid for three months.’ You can call us and we’re going to tell you that that’s probably not that long in a probate case. Typically a probate is going to last between a year to two years depending on how difficult or complicated the estate is. We’re going to tell you if you have a good case, and we’re going to tell you if you have a bad case, but we can help you if you are one of those beneficiaries who perhaps didn’t get a distribution timely or who doesn’t believe that the assets were appropriately managed.”
