Combining Strong Litigation Skills With Well-Rounded Legal Knowledge

Probate litigation is a challenging area of law. It requires technical knowledge of tax issues, estate planning and administrative principles and exceptional litigation skills.

Because our attorneys are well-versed in complex estate planning, we understand the legal landscape that shapes the outcome of probate and trust disputes. We are also accomplished, litigators. Many have earned professional acclaim from prestigious organizations such as Chambers U.S.A., New England Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America.

We Handle Probate and Trust Litigation Involving:

  • Will contests
  • Capacity challenges
  • Undue influence
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Disputes over asset valuations and accountings
  • Mismanagement of assets
  • Guardianship disputes

Many of these cases concern the trusts and/or estates of business owners or executives. High-value assets such as closely-held businesses, real estate, stock options and retirement accounts may be at stake.
