Trust and Estate
With a combination of experienced litigators and estate planning attorneys working together to advance our clients’ interests, we are uniquely positioned to represent clients in a wide range of disputes, including will and trust contests, removal of trustees and other fiduciaries, defense and prosecution of breaches of fiduciary duties, and reformation and interpretations of ambiguous estate planning documents.
We regularly represent trustees, beneficiaries, and persons with claims against trust and estate assets, with particular attention toward championing the decedent’s intent. It is not uncommon for us to protect a trustee from disgruntled beneficiaries, or conversely ensure that a trustee is allocating and distributing assets in a fair and just matter on behalf of our beneficiary clients.
While we advocate zealously in all litigation matters, a particular awareness, appreciation, and sensitivity to the inherent familial ties in trust and estate litigation are ever-present in the minds of our attorneys and staff as we conduct our representation in these cases. We understand that there are not only legal issues involved with trust and estate litigation but also family issues.
Below are some examples of the trust and estate litigation services Morton McGoldrick provides:
- Will and Trust Contests
- Removal of Trustee, Executor or Other Fiduciary
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty
