Often trust litigation involves more than just money because a third-party is allowed to hold assets on behalf of a beneficiary, and they can be arranged in any number of ways. Though a trust often allows the beneficiaries to gain access to the assets more quickly, there are still many unique laws and procedures to consider. In turn, these problems can interfere with a trustee’s administration of the trust and may not save you the time, fees, or taxes as was intended when the trust was established. Our lawyers possess extensive knowledge of the laws and procedures applicable to trust disputes. We can help negotiate and litigate where needed, ensuring your protection if you have any complex problems or issues surrounding a trust.
This particular part of litigation usually involves the property and debts left behind when people die. Basically, at the time of his or her death, the decedent’s estate includes a sum total of all property, both real and personal, tangible and intangible. Upon a person’s death, the estate will pass through a formal legal process through an executor under the terms of a will. Unfortunately, this means estate litigation is almost inevitable. Not only do the assets need to be accounted for and valued, but also those who believe they have a claim on the estate can file it with the court. Our attorneys have an in-depth understanding of estate law and have years of experience in procedure and tactics. We value the trust you place in us and will do all we can to protect your financial and personal affairs involving estate litigation.
Death is an unavoidable fact of life. While it isn’t fun to think about, legally preparing yourself and your family for such an event can lighten the stress placed on the family and make the distribution of the deceased’s estate a much less painful process. That is why it is so important to write and keep a legally valid will.
Probate litigation is important for everyone, but it is particularly important for those who have a large estate or a considerable amount of wealth because their estate is more likely to be disputed, simply because of its high value.
