Estate and Trust Litigation

HomeEstate PlanningEstate and Trust Litigation

There are few attorneys who take the time to become true estate and trust litigators.  It takes years of experience with a wide variety of cases, education regarding esoteric legal concepts and dedication.  Our estate and trust litigation group does not trifle with other types of litigation – this is all that we do.

Disputes that arise from the death or incompetency of a family member require attorneys to offer practical, strategic advice.  We help our clients avoid litigation whenever possible and zealously advocate for favorable settlements.  When litigation is inevitable, we draw on a deep bench of trial experience to strive for favorable outcomes, even in the most contentious disputes.

Our fiduciary litigation and risk management experience allows us to protect and advocate for our individual and corporate fiduciary clients as they navigate complex family disputes.  We provide critical advice on avoiding litigation as well as positioning our fiduciaries for a successful defense in the courtroom.

Examples of the matters we handle include:

  • Will and trust contests
  • Trust constructions
  • Breach of fiduciary cases
  • Modifying and terminating trusts
  • Conflicts regarding taxable and non-taxable gifts
  • Contested claims and citation proceedings to recover assets
  • Guardianship proceedings and contested guardianships
  • Mediation and arbitration
  • Accountings
  • Contested issues regarding closely-held business interests
  • Charitable pledge disputes and modifications of charitable trusts
  • Appeals
