Inheritance & Probate Disputes

Inheritance & probate dispute resolution can be critical.

Arguably, among the most challenging events we experience is the loss of a loved one. After all, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, godparents, and other family members play critical roles in our lives and shape who we are.

To make matters worse, sometimes when our loved one passes, their wishes are murky. This can lead to painful struggles with other relatives over the estate, inheritance, and probate. These types of inheritance & probate disputes can stand in the way of much needed grieving, and can rip apart lifelong, family relationships.

The Practitioner Advantage


Each member of the Consensus team has more than fifteen years of field experience, working on behalf of clients as their negotiators and mediators. As practitioners, we routinely test and apply cutting edge strategies and theories as part of our various client situations, ranging from hostage situations to billion-dollar business transactions to political standoffs.

Accordingly, we are highly informed about the strengths inherent to different approaches and frameworks, and how various theoretical concepts would or would not apply to your contexts. Our practitioner experience translates into more concrete advice based on firsthand experience, a true understanding of how theories play out in the real world (and when popular ideas would fall short), and an ability to relate to professionals at all levels of seniority – including members of your C-suite.
