Removing squatters from estate property is an irritating, but common occurrence. The deceased might have had renters, friends or even family members living in real property. After death, if these persons refuse to depart, there is a removal process. Our Probate Attorneys are experienced in squatter removal, with vast experience in Probate and estate matters, we can advise you and help you avoid traps and pitfalls. If you are currently serving as a Executor or Personal Representative, or if you are considering taking on that fiduciary responsibility, contact one of our experienced Probate Litigation Attorneys to advise and represent you.
The judge will remove a squatter only if he or she hears the proper evidence. You must provide the judge evidence in the form of documents and testimony. This evidence is submitted subject to the Squatter’s objections. Our experienced Estate Litigation Attorneys will walk you through every step of this complicated journey. Convincing judges to remove squatters is what we do.
Judges take squatter removal seriously, and will only accept evidence if your team has followed proper procedures. The squatter may use a variety of theories to justify staying in the house and procedural steps to draw out the process and increase costs. An experienced Squatter Removal Attorney can assess the situation and help avoid pitfalls. In the end, the experience will save you money.
If an Executor or Trustee believes that a squatter is wrongfully occupying estate or trust property requiring removal they can hire an Estate Litigation Attorney to petition for an order requiring the squatter’s removal. The squatter may then depart, or might require involving a sheriff.
Retaining an attorney experienced with squatter removal will save time and money. An experienced Estate Litigation Attorney will assemble and present the evidence so the judge can properly rule as quickly as possible.

Peter was excellent. He explained everything very clearly and is super friendly. My wife and I originally tried using a lawyer through group legal coverage, but unfortunately the old adage - "you get what you pay for" - applied to the other lawyer, and we decided to go with a real professional.
I saw four lawyers and was told by all of them; I should just forget contesting my mother's will. I knew what happened, but it is very hard to prove undue influence. I contacted the Law Offices of Peter L. Klenk & Associates. Attorney Amanda DiChello took my case. They were very honest and upfront about what would be involved trying to prove what I knew was true. Attorney DiChello may be young but she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. She listened and understood what I conveyed to her. She knew exactly what information to use and crafted an outstanding interrogatory and many powerful depositions. Attorney DiChello understood the various emotional feelings this case created for my family and me; she was always there for us with a kind and encouraging word. We went to trial. The amount of work which she and her Paralegal did for the trial was incredible. They both knew my case inside and out! Attorney DiChello's powerful interrogative and thinking skills produced a positive outcome. Attorney DiChello did what other seasoned lawyers said was impossible!
