Most Wills, Trusts and Estate Plans are clearly written and beneficiaries understand their rights in accordance with the decedent’s intentions. However, sometimes, disputes and controversies may arise. We realize these issues are stressful and sensitive. Avoiding litigation is always our goal but sometimes it becomes necessary. We strive to give individual attention in guiding our clients through this process. We represent Trustees, Personal Representatives, and beneficiaries (including surviving spouses and children).
