In an effort to protect the health of our clients, employees, and communities from potential impacts of COVID-19, we are holding virtual meetings (via telephone) as an alternative to traditional face-to-face meetings. The quarantine does not need to stop you from getting the legal help you need and we are available to help entirely virtually! Feel free to reach out for a Free Virtual Consultation.

In order to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of the healthcare workers and first responders helping our communities, we want to extend a discount to each of them and their families on any estate planning services to help them protect and care for their own loved ones.

Over 90 Years of Combined Experience Credentials, Compassion and Commitment Make Us the Clear Choice

Asset Ownership Disputes

Fight for the Assets You Deserve Serving in Troy, Oakland County, & Surrounding Areas

After a person dies, identifying the status of assets can be difficult. Sometimes assets are simply taken from the estate on the grounds that “Grandma always told me that she wanted me to have this ring,” or “you know Dad wanted to leave the truck to me, don’t you?” A will should identify which assets are property of the estate, which are titled in a trust, and which are joint assets that pass to a surviving joint tenant. If you are in the middle of an asset ownership dispute, get the help of experienced Troy estate and probate attorneys like the ones at Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras.

Our experienced probate attorneys represent clients in cases such as:

  • Disputes about gift transfers
  • Contested ownership between a trust and a decedent’s estate
  • Undue influence, fraud or duress with respect to an inter vivos transfer
  • Survivorship rights of a surviving spouse or child with respect to real property, bank accounts, brokerage accounts, motor vehicles or other jointly-held assets
  • A claim by an heir or personal representative that the surviving signatory on a joint account does not succeed to ownership, but instead is administering an account of convenience for the benefit of others similarly situated
  • Challenges to beneficiary designations on life insurance policies, annuity policies or retirement accounts

  • Have an interest in a decedent’s estate that seems to be missing some valuable asset
  • Are a personal representative who needs advice about resolving conflicting claims to insurance proceeds
