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.

Debtors, Creditors & Probate in Troy

Helping Resolve Debtor-Creditor Disputes in Oakland County Probate Court

The personal representative or trustee of a decedent’s estate is required to review, assess, and resolve any claims that creditors have against the estate as well as collect any debts owed to the decedent. If there are disputes regarding liability, specific amounts owed, availability of liability insurance, or counter claims, settling the estate can become complicated and delayed. The team at Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras helps clients to resolve matters of debt in an estate.

Determined Advocates for Your Financial Interests

For advice on how to resolve debtor-creditor disputes in Michigan probate courts, look no further than BRMM’s commercial litigation attorneys.

Our lawyers represent estates with:

  • Determining and collecting debt disputes
  • Creditors who need help recovering amounts owed by an estate
  • Third-party debtors in need of defense to the claims of an estate in probate court

Probate court jurisdiction has broadened since Michigan passed their probate code in 2000, meaning most debtor-creditor disputes can be litigated in either probate court or circuit court. Our team can help clients know which forum would be more advantageous for their particular case.

Experience in Many Dispute Cases

Personal representatives owe a fiduciary duty to heirs and devisees to protect the estate by liquidating its claims for the greatest value practicable under the circumstances and by making sure that the claims paid reflect genuine obligations in correct or properly compromised amounts. If you need advice about third-party claims against or in favor of a Michigan probate estate, contact BRMM today.

We help probate court litigants resolve debtor-creditor disputes as well as other third-party litigation in such situations as the following:

  • Breach of contract claims involving agreements to which the decedent was a party
  • Tort claims either on behalf of or against the decedent
  • Partnership or business disputes involving the decedent’s management or ownership interest in a company
  • Recovery of money owing to the decedent, or his or her trust, after his or her death
