Estate Practice and Litigation

Bovis, Kyle, Burch & Medlin, LLC has been involved in estate litigation including defending commercial surety clients before the probate courts in Georgia for more than 50 years.  These services include claims for and against executors, trustees, administrators, personal representatives, guardians, conservators, and other fiduciaries. 

While we typically defend corporate insurers who issue bonds for fiduciaries, our reputation and experience frequently motivates other types of clients to retain our services.  The firm has experience in handling forensic accounting and financial reviews to effectively determine the receipt and ultimate use of estate resources in courtroom settings.  The firm's services have been provided not just in litigation forums, but for consultation and advice with respect to fulfillment of the duties required of fiduciaries to avoid or respond to potential litigation.
