Civil Litigation

Over the course of administering an estate or trust or making decisions on behalf of an aging family member, disputes arise. When these disputes cannot be settled by other means, parties can find themselves embroiled in a complex lawsuit, such as:

  • Probate and Estate Litigation
  • Will Contests / Trust Contests
    • Undue Influence
    • Mental Incapacity
    • Fraud
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty Claims
  • Fiduciary Removal
  • Trust Termination
  • Commissioner of Accounts Hearings
    • Debts & Demands Hearings
    • Disputed Claims
    • Objections to Administration of Estates
    • Filing Exception to Commissioner Reports
  • Suits to Surcharge and Falsify
  • Voluntary Conveyance Suits
  • Disputed Guardianship and Conservatorship Matters
  • Elder Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation Claims
  • Power of Attorney Disputes
  • Shareholder Claims
  • Business Disputes

In selecting an attorney to help you with these types of disputes, it is essential that you choose an attorney who not only has experience with filing and defending lawsuits, generally – but one who has the requisite experience and an integral understanding of the issues that arise in fiduciary litigation.
