Why is Illinois estate litigation so time-consuming and expensive?

Contested estate litigation can be expensive and time-consuming for a variety of factors, including:


  • The complexity of the legal issues
  • The personalities of the litigating parties
  • The litigation styles of the attorneys involved
  • The demeanor of the probate court judge


The main reason litigation drags on for a long time is usually the emotions of the litigating parties.  Generally, one party (or both) feels that he/she has been wronged in some way, and that the probate court system must right this wrong.  If the opposing parties and attorneys work together to reach a solution, however, expensive and time-consuming litigation can usually be avoided.


If you have an Illinois estate litigation matter, contact us today to see how we can help you resolve the estate.  In our practice, we represent Executors named in a Will (as well as Administrators who have already been appointed by a local Probate Court) to settle litigation related to an estate.  If you are an Executor (or a court-appointed Administrator) with a contested matter, give us a call at (630) 898-4789 to set up a free initial consultation.
