What is Estate Litigation?
Estate litigation refers to legal proceedings to resolve disputes over assets of a loved one who has passed away. Most of the time this involves challenging the validity of a will by filing a complaint in a decedent's estate. A judge or jury can declare a will or trust to be void if the person who made the will or trust lacked testamentary capacity or because a beneficiary had influenced the decedent's drafting of the will or trust.
Estate litigation can also involve challenging a will or trust even when the person is still living, usually this is the case with an elderly person with diminished capacity who needs a guardian appointed.

A trust litigation attorney becomes necessary when disputes start to arise between heirs and beneficiaries during the organized distribution of property. Usually, a trust is constructed with clearly stated instructions, however, legal issues can still become an issue and require the services of a trust litigation attorney.
