Probate, Guardianship And Trust Litigations Are Increasing

The growth of extended families with stepchildren and adopted children, and the increasing longevity of our parents and grandparents, have inevitably led to more heirs and beneficiaries seeking greater shares and distributions from their families' estates. Financial demands on working families have also given rise to increasing cases of financial exploitation and abuse of elders.

We have witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of cases involving claims of undue influence by family members in procuring and changing wills, trusts and estate plans, and claims that a brother or sister using a power of attorney has obtained control of their loved one's finances without properly accounting for every sibling.

We have successfully litigated contested probate, trust and guardianship matters, including will contests, claims of breach of fiduciary duties, abuse of powers of attorney, accounting actions, claims for the removal of trustees and cases of financial exploitation of elders. If you find yourself in one of these challenges or disputes, we can provide you with experienced legal representation.
