The Firm's extensive litigation experience in this area includes contested trust and probate proceedings, disputes involving trust administration, challenges to the validity or dispositive provisions of trusts and wills, litigation between trustees and beneficiaries, challenges to the legal competence of a trustor or testator, administrative proceedings involving state or federal death taxes, and ongoing representation of regional and national financial institutions, as trustees.
