Disputes over the distribution of estate assets occur more frequently than you might think, even when there is a valid will or trust in place. These disputes arise for a wide range of reasons. Sometimes, family members disagree about “who was supposed to get what.” Such disputes can prove costly, resulting in devastating financial and personal consequences for some family members. They can also lead to hard feelings that last a lifetime.

Some estate litigation cases involve outside parties trying to grab a portion of the family estate for themselves. Perhaps even more disturbing, other cases involve the very people we trust to manage our estates, such as executors and trustees, who betray that trust and use estate assets for personal gain.

If you are embroiled in a dispute over an estate, whatever the cause, we are prepared to fight aggressively to protect your interests. While many estate planning attorneys shy away from estate litigation, we do not. In fact, attorneys frequently refer contested matters to us.
