Trust and Probate Estate Litigation
Our attorneys represent trustees, executors and beneficiaries in trust and probate estate lawsuits and settlements.  We also represent fiduciaries in negotiations with the Internal Revenue Service. We have the experience in contested matters to handle:
  • probate and trust contests
  • petitions for instructions and construction
  • accounting actions and objections to accountings
  • breach of fiduciary duty and removal actions
  • actions for damages
  • citation and claim actions
  • challenges to fees
  • petitions for heirship and trust modification
  • IRS disputes

Cost efficient resolution of contested matters is our utmost priority.  We often prevent controversy by keeping clients’ plans updated with the latest tax law developments and integrating clients’ estate plans with their business planning.  We also facilitate proactive communication between relevant parties to prevent expensive, time consuming conflicts that damage family relations and weaken family business entities.
