What Does a Trusts & Estates Litigation Lawyer Do?

Trusts and estates litigation covers a wide array of legal issues. What we can do for you in litigating a case depends on the specific circumstances of your case. For instance, a trust or will dispute can arise over the validity of the creation of a trust or will as well as to the various rights of each of the beneficiaries. Disputes may arise over whether the person who created the trust or will had the required mental capacity when he or she created the transfer instrument. Disputes may also arise if one person unduly influenced someone to such an extent that the trust or will was an expression of the intent of another person instead of the true intent of the person who created it. Such disputes can involve an alleged breach of fiduciary duties by the trustee or administrator.

What is Fiduciary Duty?

Fiduciary duty is the legal term for the responsibility the fiduciary assumes when they are granted authority over the estate.

When subjective judgement is involved in the practice of law, it’s certainly possible that the outcome could hinge upon how well an experienced attorney presents a client’s case.

There are as many possibilities that could trigger a lawsuit for breach of fiduciary duty as there are trustees and beneficiaries.

Common scenarios include:


Whether you are a beneficiary who isn’t sure you are receiving proper treatment from a trustee or are a trustee being unjustly accused of improperly administering a trust, contact us for a strategy session to learn how to protect and enforce your legal rights.
