If you’re unsure how to navigate either of these processes, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Here’s a quick overview of what these concepts entail:
Trust litigation may occur when someone takes legal issue with the appointed trustee. Because executing a will can be so complex, a trustee and beneficiaries may run into numerous kinds of disputes.

Do I Need an Attorney?
Many people believe that speaking with an attorney will only complicate things rather than make the situation easier. This couldn’t be farther from the case. Working with an experienced lawyer is instrumental in getting you the outcome you need. We encourage you to consider a probate and trust litigation attorney in the following circumstances:
- The will was changed under suspicious circumstances
- Your deceased loved one was influenced by a third party while creating the will
- The trustee does not act according to the will
- The creator of the trust did not have the authority to do so
- You believe documents were forged
- Your deceased loved one did not have the mental capacity to make sound judgments concerning their assets
