Trust, Estate + Fiduciary Litigation

The Ideal Balance of Litigation Experience With Probate and Trust Expertise

Attorneys in Anderson Yazdi’s Trust, Estate and Fiduciary Litigation Practice are experienced litigators who focus exclusively on disputes involving trusts, estates and fiduciaries, and who work in conjunction with their distinguished estate planning colleagues to achieve the best results for their clients. This unique collaboration between planners and litigators – all of whom are dedicated specialists in their respective arenas – enables Anderson Yazdi to offer its clients cohesive solutions and unparalleled service.

While many law firms can count both estate planners and litigators among their ranks, few are armed with attorneys fully equipped to handle the special challenges of trust and estate litigation. Consequently, a common practice among law firms handling these cases is to assign them either to estate planners with limited or no courtroom experience or to civil litigators with little or no background in the field of trusts and estates.

Through its Trust, Estate + Fiduciary Litigation Practice, Anderson Yazdi offers what few other firms can: litigators who regularly appear and try cases in Probate Court and have extensive knowledge of the substantive law and unique procedures applicable to probate litigation. We represent individuals, beneficiaries, executors, trustees, guardians, nonprofit entities, and professional and institutional fiduciaries across a wide range of disputes, including:

  • Challenges to trusts and wills
  • Trustee misconduct claims
  • Trustee removal
  • Financial abuse actions
  • Accounting disputes
  • Trust interpretation controversies
  • Conservatorships

Due to the emotionally charged nature of trust and estate disputes, effective resolution requires a high level of sensitivity in addition to exceptional legal and negotiating skills. Our litigators have chosen to devote their careers exclusively to trust and estate litigation because they excel in this highly personal area of law. This dedication to their practice has enabled them to hone the full range of skills necessary to manage the complexities of these cases, and to resolve them successfully both in and out of court.
