Estate And Trust Litigation Services
On the other end of the spectrum, estate litigation deals with problems that arise during the administration of a trust or an estate. Heirs and beneficiaries may challenge the validity of a will or trust document or the administrator’s actions.
Questions may arise about whether the deceased was of sound mind when he or she made the will or trust. Was the deceased unfairly influenced by someone to make larger than normal gifts to them? Did the administrator unfairly distribute the estate? These contested cases may wind up in litigation, but can be resolved during negotiation as well. Whatever steps are required, we aggressively protect our clients’ interests.
