Trust And Estate Litigation

Legal disputes concerning trusts, estates, and guardianships are unique, and call for litigation counsel who focus in these areas. Our attorneys employ an aggressive, yet sensible approach to helping clients through legal disputes and entanglements, and take pride in their ability to develop efficient and creative litigation strategies. They openly communicate with opposing counsel and often utilize alternative dispute resolution procedures, both with an eye toward achieving cost-effective resolutions and preserving long-standing family relationships.

To that end, we recommend approaches during probate, trust administration and estate planning that minimize exposure to potential claimants. When rational settlement options are unavailable, our attorneys serve as thoughtful and passionate advocates from the inception of litigation through trial and appeal.

We frequently represent individuals and fiduciaries in:

  • Will Contents and Undue Influence Cases
  • Trust actions
  • Actions to construe the terms of wills and trusts
  • Fiduciary Removal Proceedings
  • Elective Share Litigation
  • Post-Death Challenges to Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
