What Can Cause Estate Litigation

While no one wants litigation to come up during the administration of an estate, the same factors seem to cause it. In our experience, estate litigation commonly results from challenging wills due to alleged undue influence, fraud or testamentary capacity. Disputes can also come up when someone misinterprets the will provisions, fails to uphold executor obligations properly or does not accurately distribute assets.

When there is a suspicion of an estate administrator failing to uphold their duties, or the accurate and final wishes of a loved one are not being recognized, it is common for a dispute to arise.

Common Trust Litigation Causes

Trust litigation also has its own causes. Failing to enforce the terms of the trust, breaching fiduciary duty, and disputes between trustees and beneficiaries can all create lengthy and complicated litigation needs. It is common for there to be questions about what qualifies as proper trust management or what is the correct interpretation of ambiguous trust language, and we are here to clarify these complicated trust issues. Our goal in these situations is to minimize the difficulty of litigation matters while providing our clients with clear guidance and robust advocacy through their trust disputes.
