The tragic loss of a loved one is only made worse if you feel something is amiss when you learn about the terms of a will or trust. In such difficult times, it is important to know that you may have recourse. Estate litigation is a possibility and our firm is very experienced in this area of the law.
Acceptable grounds for an estate challenge include fraud, incompetence, undue influence, and improper execution. We thoroughly explain these concepts and evaluate your options with you. Emotions can run high when you feel that you have been wronged, so we put our clients at ease and empower them with actionable knowledge. At the end of the assessment process, you will be well-equipped to make objective and informed decisions.
Breach Of Fiduciary Duty
In addition to estate litigation that can be initiated to contest the terms of a will or trust, we also handle breach of fiduciary duty cases. A fiduciary is a trustee, executor, or personal representative who has a legal duty to serve the best interests of the beneficiaries.
Fiduciaries are held to high standards, and you can file a breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit if you have been victimized by an act of fiduciary misconduct.
Our firm also has over four decades of experience providing defense to such litigation, should you find yourself involved in a contested estate and accused of wrongdoing. If you are a fiduciary who is being unfairly accused, we can provide defense to such litigation.
