Trust & Estate Litigation – Inheritance Disputes
When litigation concerning a trust, will, conservatorship or guardianship is unavoidable, our trust and estate litigation attorneys are there to protect you. Our team understands how emotionally exhausting litigation with other family members can be. We break down the litigation process for you, explaining in clear terms what to expect, possibilities for resolution before trial and the risks and rewards of proceeding to trial.
Trust litigation specifically encompasses the administration and distribution of a trust which is usually established with clearly specified conditions concerning the distribution of the assets in the account and is managed by an appointed trustee. Problems can arise concerning the funding and/or administration of the trust upon the death of the donor or “settlor.”
Trust and estate litigation, by its very nature, can involve family and friends, and close relationships are often put to the test. At Law & Stein, our attorneys work closely with our clients to develop strategies that will result in the best possible resolution to the case either through a negotiated settlement or through the litigation process if that becomes necessary.
Disputes involving trust and estates require legal counsel that is not only experienced in handling contested wills, disputed claims, accounting issues, and a variety of other problems that may arise after the death of an individual, but attorneys that are sensitive to the emotional aspects associated with this type of litigation.
Our attorneys provide clients with the technical advice and legal services necessary when a claim against a trust or estate becomes litigious, but we also strive to provide a level of personal service that takes into consideration that difficult nature of this type of litigation.
The attorneys at Law & Stein assist individuals and businesses when litigation becomes inevitable. As each individual and business is unique, the issues presented in each case can be quite novel. As attorneys, we become familiar with the intricacies of our client’s businesses and devise appropriate solutions to various problems. Our firm is a strong believer in alternative dispute resolution, and will use it wherever appropriate in order to save all parties the costs of protracted litigation. However, in the event that a matter cannot be resolved informally, we vigorously represent our clients at trial and beyond.
Businesses and companies are often faced with complex disputes with other businesses, a government entity, a customer, or a group of individuals such as the company’s shareholders. Business litigation attorneys provide advice to business clients covering a wide range of litigation, including contracts, disputes, liability issues, and partnerships, to name a few.
These complex issues require an understanding of both the legal issues that are involved in the litigation as well as the nature of the business in question.
