One of the few comforts following the death of a loved one is knowing that they have provided for you and that you will receive some form of inheritance. These inheritances, usually dictated by a will, a trust, an insurance policy or assignment of a retirement account, can be a great source of conflict, however, and disputes between family members and beneficiaries are not uncommon. This is especially true in second or third marriage situations or in families with multiple heirs.
If you recently lost a loved one and are now faced with an inheritance dispute, it is advised that you seek a proven and experienced Dayton probate and trust attorney to represent your interests. At Rieser & Marx, our team understands the subtleties and sensitivities inherent to estate planning and trust and probate matters and is ready to bring informed and dynamic representation to your inheritance dispute.

Even when your loved one had taken recommended measures to organize their estate before passing away, inheritance disputes are still possible. Every estate—and family—is different and sorting through any conflicts that occur following the passing of the loved one can be an emotionally taxing and costly endeavor.
Common causes for inheritance disputes include:
An inheritance dispute can halt the probate and asset distribution process and lead to protracted legal procedures. Whether you and the other party are ready to face mediation to work out your dispute or must make your case to a probate or other judge, our firm is ready to stand with you. We are well-versed in estate planning law and know how to ensure that our clients' interests are spoken for and that their claim to their rightful inheritance is properly and legally asserted.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOU MUST NOT WAIT TO ASSERT YOUR RIGHTS. Many people in our experience have delayed asserting their claims until the relatively short periods one can contest and challenge a will, trust or other asset disposition have expired (indeed in many of the worst cases, this is exactly what the bad actors are hoping and planning for). Don’t sleep on your rights.
