The tension that comes along with litigation is greatly intensified when the dispute involves those closest to you at odds over an estate or trust. Unfortunately, the recent proliferation of laws governing trusts and estates opens new areas for potential disputes and will likely increase the volume of trust and estate litigation in coming years. Given the increased complexity and volume of these disputes, it helps to have an experienced team of litigators and dedicated trust and estate attorneys ready to advocate on your behalf.
