Estate Litigation Lawyer
We like to think that when we die or a loved one passes, the last will and testament will provide clear instructions for the distribution of property. Sadly, that is not always the case.

At our law firm, we can represent your interests in court to the fullest extent of the law. We handle the following types of issues:
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Claims against estates

- Estate distribution disputes
- Probate litigation
- Trust litigation
