Estate Litigation

Estate Litigation

Proper and timely estate planning is a great way to avoid future disputes and family turmoil. However, at times, even when your rights are adequately protected, estate challenges arise during the probate proceedings. Estate litigation is a complex area of law that concerns actions brought in court against the estate.

It refers to legal disputes between beneficiaries, fiduciaries and third parties. These disputes are often filled with frustration and intense emotions. Our attorneys always try to resolve estate disputes out of court in order to avoid costly and prolonged litigation. However, if no settlement is reached after attempts to attain an amicable resolution through negotiations, we will undertake a vigorous court battle to protect your interests.

  • Will Contests
