Trusts and Estates


Our civil litigators represent trustees, settlors, beneficiaries and other interested parties in a wide variety of disputes involving trusts and estates, including claims of fiduciary liability, trust and will contests, petitions to remove trustees, and petitions for accountings. We file petitions for instructions on behalf of clients serving as trustees where clarification under trusts or other instruments is necessary to protect the parties’ rights. We also prosecute and defend claims for elder or dependent adult abuse. On these matters, we work closely with partners in the firm’s Estate Planning Group.
