Preserving the Legacy
Inheritance-based disputes often erupt into intense, seemingly insoluble conflicts. Our Estate & Trust Litigation attorneys seek to help clients resolve those disputes to preserve the value of family assets and relationships. We understand the emotions at the center of estate conflicts arising from inheritance and division of family assets and businesses. Our level-headed approach and in-depth experience navigating disagreements involving complex estate and trust matters serves to give peace of mind and achieve meaningful resolutions.
In addition, our frequent representation of fiduciaries like trustees, personal representatives, and guardians, allows us to bring an enhanced understanding of the fiduciary duties and responsibilities at stake when disputes arise.
