Estate and Trust Litigation

No matter how hard people try, estate plans, wills and trusts can end in conflict, especially when there is a substantial sum of money at stake.  There are so many factors that go into these cases and scenarios, and surviving beneficiaries often have strong beliefs as to what an estate plan should or does say.  To complicate matters, emotional tensions create further disputes, which can result in litigation.

The attorneys at Beethe Law have a significant amount of experience in this area, which will help navigate this complex area of the law.  We often see claims for breach of fiduciary duty, undue influence, financial exploitation, or self-dealing, and there are also challenges to the estate planning documents themselves.

We have the experience to assist you in these matters, and we handle estate disputes, including:

  • Will and Trust Contests
  • Beneficiary Disputes
  • Trustee Removal
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty/Self-Dealing
  • Undue Influence/Financial Exploitation
