Probate and Trust Litigation

Probate and Trust Litigation

Estate Litigation

We will assist with a wide range of probate and trust disputes, including both Will and Trust contests, claims against the Estate or Trust, and civil or other lawsuits filed against or brought on behalf of the Decedent.

Modification of Trusts

In many cases, Trusts need to be modified because of changed circumstances not contemplated by the original Grantors. Although these trusts often state that they may not be modified, we have represented Trusts which have been successfully modified to conform to changes in law or fact with the approval of the court.

Claims Against Fiduciaries

One of the most frequently litigated areas relates to alleged fiduciary malfeasance. We have prosecuted and defended fiduciaries with regard to allegations that Personal Representatives, and/or Trustees have failed to carry out their fiduciary duties. These duties have become increasingly complex, and compliance with the myriad duties is one of our focus areas.

Thank you so much for your patient professionalism...
