Estate, Probate and Fiduciary Litigation

We are here to represent you in connection with estate, probate, guardianship, fiduciary, family limited partnerships and similar litigation matters. We meet with you, review your case, plan strategy, and explore ways regarding how your interests may be protected.  We seek to achieve favorable outcomes for clients prior to trial, but if one cannot be achieved, we’re ready and well-prepared to defend your interests through trial and appeal.

While we’re known for and take great pride in developing creative solutions, the bottom line is that we’re experienced litigators and are prepared for trial if an acceptable resolution cannot be reached for our clients.

We give all of our clients personal attention.  We take the fate of our clients to heart and personally care about the outcome of each case.

We take on the burden of litigation so that our clients can go on with their lives with the peace of mind that comes from having an experienced firm in their corner.
