Trust Litigation
People often create trusts as a means to avoid the costs and hassle of formal probate proceedings.

Trusts involve many moving parts which create potential for conflict, whether it be between beneficiaries and a trustee, between beneficiaries, or from outside third parties. Our team represents beneficiaries, trustees, or third parties with interests in a trust.
