Sometimes a dispute arises as to how a loved one would have wanted their estate to be divided. If matters cannot be resolved amicably, you will need an attorney that knows how to litigate for your right of inheritance. Nowakowski Legal PLLC is there to help protect you.


In some unfortunate situations, a dispute arises as to the validity of a will, trust, or the manner in which a "personal representative" is administrating an estate. Depending on the situation, a claim may need to be brought in the probate, or through a separate but ancillary proceeding.

Many disputes arising from a will, trust, or probate matter would fall under TEDRA guidelines in Washington State - The Trust and Estate Dispute Resolution Act. Unlike other types of civil litigation, this statute puts estate litigation on an expedited path toward resolution.  While this does provide parties with a quicker resolution, it also means that an attorney is required that both understands TEDRA proceedings, and is able to respond and react in an agile manner.
