What do you do if you’re involved in a Florida probate, an estate and there is a conflict of interest by the person that’s running the estate but some states call a executor, in Florida we call that person a personal representative. That person is running the Florida probate or the Florida estate. What do you do if there is a conflict of interest? Well the first thing you need to do is hire yourself a decent Florida estate litigation attorney. And I don’t just mean somebody who handles estates or probate but who actually tries cases and handles appeals. The next thing you want to do is think about filing a proper petition. Why? Because the law doesn’t help those who remain silent. The law helps those who speak up and exercise their rights. Third, you need to read about section 733.610 that’s the part of the Florida probate code that specifically speaks about conflicts of interest by someone who’s running an estate. There’s two exceptions or two ways to get around that conflict of interest and you need to know them before you file your Florida probate lawsuit.
