Practice Areas


We understand that even under the best of circumstances, disputes arise. Experienced in both litigation and mediation, our attorneys are ready and willing to advocate on behalf of our clients both in and out of the courtroom. Our attorneys are vastly experienced in complex trust and estate litigation matters, such as will contests, elder abuse actions, breach of fiduciary duty actions, accounting and tax disputes, and other litigated matters concerning elder, beneficiary and fiduciary rights. We are one of a few firms with experience in trust and estate/family law crossover issues. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in what happens when family law issues cross over into probate and vice versa. We strive to strategically resolve controversies with creative, expeditious, and cost-effective solutions. We stick with our clients through all stages of a dispute, from pre-filing negotiations through the appellate process when necessary.
