Probate Litigation

The probate and administration process can be disputed when inheritors or other involved parties believe their rights have been denied. A fiduciary or trustee can have his/her performance challenged. A spouse can demand his/her right of election. Wills and trusts can be contested for a variety of reasons. There are serious and complex issues associated with estate litigation. When pursuing a claim, it is crucial to have expert legal guidance that will protect your inheritance and ensure that you receive what is rightfully yours.

With over 20 years of experience, we understand the emotional and financial complexities involved in estate litigation. Our team has successfully represented clients in claims involving the validity of a will or trust, the administration of trusts and estates and contested accountings. While our first priority is to guide parties to a practical and amicable solution thereby avoiding complications, expense and needless confrontation, we will fiercely litigate on behalf of our clients when necessary.

We understand that tremendous frustration can arise out of this process and go out of our way to guide you through every step of the process. We have litigated a wide range of issues that arise in these cases and have obtained verdicts, both jury and non-jury in will and trust contests, accounting proceedings and all other estate litigation matters. We can assist you in any estate matter.
