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.

Peter Klenk made a complex subject understandable and allowed us to move forward with our estate planning. He was patient with our questions and creative in the solutions he proposed.
When it came down to picking the right attorney to handle my affairs, I knew right away it was this firm. From speaking to their secretary to speaking to Peter I knew I was making the right decision. After only a few mins Peter knew right away what I was looking for and handled all my questions professionally and even gave me great feedback that put my mind at ease. All that without even giving a single penny! So of course I hired him! So far so good...
I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link for a question regarding a will. While I was expecting only a few minutes, it was a lengthy conversation. He made sure he understood the situation by asking many questions before offering advice. He then went through my options and results of each one. He left it up to me to decide if I wanted to proceed and did not push me toward one or another. His website has very useful information which I definitely researched before I called him. While I decided not to proceed at this time, I feel I had enough information to make that decision. I would not hesitate to hire him should I need to in the future.
AWESOME LAWYER! Peter Klenk is an exceptional attorney and a very nice person! Today I spoke with Peter about estate planning and was impressed with by his professionalism, cordiality, and attention to detail. I highly recommend Klenk Law for probates, wills, trusts, and other issues germane to estate planning!
Peter has done our family's trust and estate work since our children were born. He is not only extremely knowledgeable and honest, but makes sure that our arrangements remain current with the changing legal landscape. I would give him my highest recommendation as a professional in his field.
