Probate Litigation

Probate Litigation

Our Probate Litigation attorneys handle a variety of lawsuits and disputes in estate planning, no matter whether the decedent has done or not done any prior preparation. Many times disputes arise when there is sibling rivalry, a second marriage, an estate plan that omits a child or other expectant beneficiary, or an estate plan that treats beneficiaries in the same class differently than one another. Probate litigation can also arise if estate planning documents, especially trusts, are overly detailed or give too little direction to the trustee or other fiduciary.

We represent beneficiaries, heirs, creditors, trustees, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and other interested parties in probate litigation matters that include:

  • Will and Trust contests and disputes
  • Construction of Wills and Trusts
  • Lawsuits to terminate a Trust
  • Lawsuits regarding beneficiary rights
  • Lawsuit to remove a personal representative or trustee
  • Breach of fiduciary duties
  • Creditor disputes
  • Elder financial abuse and exploitation
