Estate Litigation

In his 1850s novel, Bleak House, Charles Dickens wrote of the never-ending estate court case in the matter of Jarndyce v. Jarndyce. The reality is that there is almost always a solution to estate disputes. We have helped clients navigate toward solutions to decade-old estate disputes dealing with issues such as:

  • Capacity and undue influence
  • Constructive trust interests
  • Dependent relief claims
  • Disputed transfers and joint tenancies
  • Estate trustee and power of attorney misconduct
  • Lawyer’s negligence
  • Passing of account proceedings

Our firm’s approach in estate disputes is to be responsive to the needs of our clients in seeking early resolutions through negotiation and mediation. Our litigation experience ensures that our clients always have a “plan B” in place, putting them on a strong footing to reach a fair settlement or to litigate if necessary.
