Area of Practice
Knowledgeable lawyer advises on complex estate and trust claims
I offer informed advocacy for all issues that arise during probate and trust litigation
. While many estates are closed without conflict, probate litigation can arise when potential beneficiaries contest the administration of an estate. On behalf of both executors and those who are challenging estate representatives, I work diligently to handle disputes through negotiation or in court. Also, a trustee has a fiduciary duty to act according to the terms of the trust rather than in self-interest. As a seasoned lawyer, I understand that the issues that arise in trust litigation can vary dramatically and can advise you on whether an authentic claim exists.
