Trusts & Estates Litigation

Trust and estate litigation, also referred to as fiduciary litigation, is litigation that involves issues arising from fiduciary matters. More specifically, the litigation may involve issues related to the administration of an estate or a trust; breaches of fiduciary duty by an executor, trustee, power of attorney, joint account holder, guardian or conservator; or contests and challenges to estate planning documents.

Contested Guardianships & Conservatorships

When there is a need for assistance with managing one’s care and/or finances, the law provides a mechanism whereby a guardian and/or conservator can be appointed to serve in these roles.

Business Litigation

We handle a range of matters involving business disputes in closely held companies. The issues can be wide and varying, but include rightful ownership issues, shareholder derivative lawsuits, dissolution actions, dissociation actions, and embezzlement claims.

Beneficiary Designation Disputes & Litigation

Do you know who the beneficiary of your life insurance, 401K or Thrift Savings Plan is? Good. But not everyone can recall who they designated 20 years ago, and often times that precise issue must be litigated to be resolved.
