Unfortunately, estate and trust administrations may not always go smoothly.  Disputes may arise over the management of elderly or disabled family members or friends. Although estate planning can minimize the chance for later litigation, there may be times when litigation cannot be avoided.  Conflicts may include:

  • The validity of a will or trust
  • Disputes over the meaning of a will
  • Allegations of unfairness or undue influence
  • Allegations of wrongdoing by the personal representative

If that is the case, our attorneys can represent personal representatives, fiduciaries, family members, and other beneficiaries.  Our attorneys can act as your advocate in these difficult times.  Browse our litigation articles and contact us to set up a meeting so that we can help you determine the best course of action.  Also see our estate planning section for ways that the potential for future litigation can be limited with proper planning.
