Estate and Trusts Attorney

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.

When Do I Need a Trust Litigation Attorney?

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.

Here are a few reasons why a legal challenge may take place:

An unauthorized person created the trust

The creator of the trust was under pressure

Breach of fiduciary responsibilities

Document forgery

The legal battle of an estate or trust contest can be very complex and will involve a highly skilled and experienced attorney to effectively represent you.
