Trust & Estate Litigation

The death of a loved one often means resolving their financial estate. When disputes arise related to an estate or trust, the heirs and beneficiaries need thoughtful advice and zealous advocacy to ensure the decedent’s intentions are handled honorably. Likewise, trusts can be effective tools for financial management during a person’s life, but may also lead to misunderstandings that require court intervention.

We represent personal representatives, trustees, beneficiaries, and other parties in all manner of trust and estate disputes, including:

  • Will or Trust Contests
  • Interpretation of Trust Provisions
  • Allegations of Incapacity/Undue Influence/Fraud
  • Accounting Disputes
  • Removal of Fiduciaries
  • Elder Abuse Allegations
  • Disputes of Community Property
