Navigating Probate And Estate Litigation With Confidence

When facing the complexities of probate and estate litigation, knowing you have a trusted legal ally can make all the difference. Probate is the legal process of distributing a deceased person’s assets, while estate litigation arises when disputes occur. My name is Gregory J. Lesak, Jr. and I can help you in both of these cases. Whether you’re an executor, a beneficiary, or concerned about your estate’s future, I understand that these matters are more than just legal procedures; they are personal journeys that require care and attention.

With a focus on the Jacksonville area and the capacity to serve all of Florida, I am dedicated to delivering tailored solutions that align with your needs and aspirations. My extensive background in litigation, particularly with large companies, has equipped me with the strategic insight needed to tackle even the most challenging cases. I’m here to be your advocate, your guide, and your partner in seeking a resolution that serves your best interests.

Understand The Probate Process

In Florida, probate is a court-managed process that begins after someone dies, to validate their will, settle debts and distribute assets. An executor is appointed to manage the estate, either by the decedent’s will or by the court. They will notify creditors, tally assets, and, after debts and taxes are paid, distribute the estate to heirs. This can take weeks to years, depending on estate complexity and potential disputes.

Proper legal guidance is key to navigating this process efficiently. As a probate attorney, I can help you manage your responsibilities as an executor and help you navigate the probate process efficiently so that you can focus on your family during this time.

When Probate Breaks Down, Litigation Ensues

During estate litigation, conflicts can arise over the interpretation of a will, the distribution of the estate, or even the validity of the will itself. For example, where siblings are at odds over their parents’ estate and wish to dispute the executor’s decision, they can file a lawsuit to halt the probate process and dispute the decision. In such cases, you need a lawyer who can navigate the legal landscape with precision and sensitivity.
