Disputes

Your attorney’s approach to trusts and estates disputes is important.  Too many attorneys pour gasoline on a fire.  Most disputes involve long simmering resentments and emotional issues, more than the economic and legal issues.

The successor trustee may be an heir or beneficiary but, also has fiduciary duties to all the beneficiaries.  Your attorney must be able to skillfully navigate through the post death administration.  We are sensitive both to your rights and your responsibilities to bring your matter to a just resolution.

  • Validity of Trusts and Wills
  • Undue influence/Elder abuse
