After someone passes, their estate plan is designed to distribute their assets as they desired.

Our attorneys are experienced trial attorneys who are capable advocates during negotiations and in the courtroom. They invest the time necessary to learn about you, understand your situation and work to create an effective strategy to achieve your goals.
Why Litigation Might Become Necessary
There are a variety of reasons that litigation may be necessary to determine what happens to an estate after someone has passed. In many cases, the appointed trustee or executor may fail to correctly fulfill their duties. Other common issues may include:
- A will or trust may not be valid, or the validity may be questioned
- The will or trust is difficult to interpret
- The will or trust document wasn’t executed properly
- A third party exerted influence over the creator of the will or trust to determine the details of an estate plan
After a person dies, many people may feel emotionally invested in what happens to the property of the decedent’s estate. They may feel they where promised property of the estate or have unreasonable expectations. Our estate litigation attorneys can help ensure your interests or those of the estate are protected during these sometimes contentious situations.
