Trust and Probate Litigation

Sometimes, even with the best planned Trust or estate plan, a deceased person’s estate may be challenged.  A beneficiary or other person may file a lawsuit to obtain what he or she believes to be a rightful inheritance, distribution, or claim.

In these cases, we work with the Trustee or personal representative to defend the estate and preserve estate assets so they may be distributed according to the trust agreement or probate law.

If the Trust document provides for mediation of disputes, we will assist the Trustee in the mediation process to arrive at a fair settlement without litigation.
