Trust & Estate Litigation
Even with the best of planning, disputes do arise and you may need an attorney with trust & estate litigation expertise. Forethought Law assists fiduciaries and beneficiaries with a full range of trust & estate disputes, including financial elder abuse claims, will and trust contests, contested conservatorships, reformation and interpretations of ambiguous estate planning document, contested accountings, fiduciary removal, and breach of fiduciary duty.
Since we represent clients in estate planning, administration, and litigation, Forethought Law is uniquely suited to assist in resolving your trust & estate dispute. More particularly, we routinely represent trustees, executors, beneficiaries, heirs, and other individuals with claims involving trust and estate assets. We are often called upon to protect trustees from disgruntled beneficiaries, to ensure that trustees and executors are not breaching their fiduciary duties, and to challenge or defend trust and probate accountings.
While we advocate hard for the result you want, we are also mindful of the fact that many trust & estate disputes take place within the family context. This means that we not only work to address the legal issues involved, but also to understand the family dynamic and reach a result that is truly in your best interest.
