Understanding Contested Estate and Trust Litigation
Things can go sideways fast when a parent dies or becomes unable to make decisions for themselves. When you can’t work it out with your family, we’ll step in to obtain the best resolution in and out of the courtroom.
Handling estates appropriately
Just because someone is the executor of an estate or the trustee of a trust, that doesn’t mean they’re always right. If a deceased loved one’s estate is being mishandled, probate court may be the only way to put a stop to it.
Helping you do the right thing
Probate issues commonly arise during stressful and emotional times. When family members’ feelings are running high, those feelings can turn into accusations. An experienced attorney can help you navigate your responsibilities as an executor or a trustee, and protect you from angry beneficiaries.
