Trust and estate litigation can take many forms, including challenges to the validity of the will, claims of undue influence or fraud, disputes over the distribution of assets, or conflicts over the appointment of a trustee or executor. These disputes can be complex and emotionally charged. They may require the involvement of various legal and financial professionals such as attorneys, accountants, and appraisers.
