From Will Contests To Trust Disputes

Estate litigation can arise from any number of issues. Perhaps there was not a will, a trust or an estate plan in place. Perhaps there was a will, but it was created under undue influence and does not really reflect what the deceased wanted to do with his or her assets. Perhaps the will is unclear about what should be done or something is not included within it.

A trust may also be at the center of the dispute. Perhaps it was not created correctly. Perhaps the trustee is guilty of breach of fiduciary duty because he or she has taken more than a fair share or mismanaged the assets within the trust.

Whatever the case may be, I am here to help. Whether you are the executor, administrator, trustee or another person charged with seeing that the estate is handled correctly and you have been accused of wrongdoing, or you are another family member who believes that something is not being done correctly, I can help you understand your options and work toward a positive solution, one that preserves family ties whenever possible. I am well-versed in resolving these matters through negotiation or trial if needed.
