Estate & Probate Litigation

Our attorneys provide a broad spectrum of probate and trust litigation services representing both individuals and corporate fiduciaries who are involved in disputes regarding wills, trusts and estates.

We have experience with virtually all litigation issues that might arise in the course of administration of a trust or estate, including will contests; alleged mismanagement of a trust or guardianship; probate accountings; creditor’s claims; actions brought against personal representatives or trustees; and all aspects of federal and state tax litigation. We are also experienced in the negotiation and mediation of settlements when a settlement is in the best interests of the client.

With our primary focus on helping our clients to avoid litigation, we provide advice to fiduciaries on opening and administering probate estates, minimizing taxes, gathering, protecting and investing the assets, and distributing assets to the appropriate beneficiaries. Managing the affairs of a trust or estate requires strict adherence to complex state and federal laws and regulations, and we advise clients on how to comply with these laws and regulations.
