We advise personal representatives, trustees, heirs and beneficiaries on settlement negotiations and litigations concerning trusts and estates, including TEDRA petitions.  These disputes can be especially hard to go through, particularly when the parties involved are still grieving or dealing with longstanding hard feelings between them.  In managing these cases, we are always mindful of the significant potential cost and personal toll that extended litigation poses for our clients.  Common issues in these matters are:

  • Accounting of Assets
  • Drafting Mistakes and Errors
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Duress, Undue Influence, and Coercion
  • Mismanagement and Fraud
  • Inappropriate Distributions
  • Lost Wills
  • Will and Trust Interpretation
  • Lack of Mental Capacity
  • Vulnerable Adult Exploitation
  • Misuse and Abuse of Power of Attorney
  • Personal Representative and Trustee Removal
  • Trust Reformation
