PROBATE AND ESTATE LITIGATION
We provide representation to both fiduciaries and beneficiaries in disputes regarding will contests, trust contests, will and trust construction and reformation proceedings and other estate litigation. In those circumstances where it is necessary to appoint a guardian of the estate or person of a minor or disabled adult, we work closely with our clients to help them identify appropriate guardians, and when necessary, initiate legal proceedings to handle the personal and financial affairs of the minor or disabled adult. After a guardianship estate is opened, we assist the guardian in all phases of its administration.
Our partners each have over 20 years of litigation experience ranging from pre-suit research, investigation and evaluation of claims and defenses all the way through trial and appeal.
Because of the trust that the judges of the 18th Judicial Circuit have in our attorneys, we are frequently appointed by the court to act as Guardians Ad Litem in guardianship and adoption cases to assist the court in its decision-making.
