We Handle Pretrial, Trial, Appeals And Mediation Proceedings

Our lawyers are well-equipped to help you resolve issues that arise during trust, estate or conservatorship proceedings.

Focused Estate Litigation Experience Means Cost-Effective Mediation and Litigation Services

At other firms, even within the Estate and Trust Department, you may be represented by an estate planning lawyer who occasionally handles litigation, or by a litigator with limited trial experience in the probate courts. However, because we exclusively represent clients in trust and estate litigation and dispute resolution, we put our appreciable experience to work to quickly identify the soundest solution to your case. In fact, the very firms that we go toe-to-toe with in litigation often refer clients to us when they have a conflict of interest.
