As Americans grow older, the value of the estates passing through probate is increasing. Unfortunately, this means the number of disputes related to probate have also increased. Our attorneys have litigated matters such as will contests, disputes regarding distribution of assets, claims against the estate of a person who has died, and breaches of fiduciary duties by Personal Representatives and Trustees.
Most of our clients prefer to avoid probate entirely. This can be accomplished through careful estate planning.
We also represent estates, family members, and independent fiduciaries during the probate process, whether or not there are known litigation matters.
