Trust Inquiries - Will Contests - Breach of Duty Litigation
As an heir to an estate, you have a significant interest in how assets are managed and distributed. We can help with inquiries to protect your interests and proceed with litigation if necessary. For example, our experienced lawyers can advise you and take appropriate action when:
- You need a full accounting of a trust or information about the performance of specific assets.
- You believe there may be valid reasons to contest a will, trust or other estate documents - due to factors such as mental incompetence or someone's undue influence on the decedent.
- You believe there has been a breach of fiduciary duty resulting in improper asset distribution or unwarranted delays in administering an estate.
- You want to pursue removal of a trustee or executor.
