Litigation should be a last resort. I think that most conflicts are best resolved without getting the court involved, but when conflicts arise between family members, trustees, executors, or beneficiaries, I provide swift and cost-effective representation to resolve disputes, including:
- -Representing beneficiaries seeking to invalidate wills or trusts on the grounds of fraud, lack of capacity, undue influence, or on the grounds that the alleged recipient of the assets is a prohibited beneficiary.
- -Defending trustees against allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, as well as representing beneficiaries with claims against trustees over fees, failures to act, or wasting of trust assets.
- -Advocating for parties in proceedings to interpret ambiguous or inconsistent terms in wills or trusts.
- -Representing beneficiaries, executors and creditors appearing in probate court.
