When a loved one passes away, it can be a very difficult and emotional time. In spite of a person’s best efforts to clarify their wishes before their passing, disputes can arise and often do. When disputes occur between the executor of an estate and the potential beneficiaries of a will or trust, this already difficult time can become unbearable. Conflicts among the family often magnify the emotions surrounding legal battles in general. Because trust and estate litigation can involve the interpretation of very complex laws and involve the disposition of significant assets, it is for this reason that there is perhaps no area of law that requires more trust in the sound legal counsel of your attorney.
