Understanding Trust and Estate Litigation

Trust and estate litigation encompasses a wide range of disputes related to the management, administration, and distribution of estates and trusts. These may include contests over the validity of wills, disputes between beneficiaries, allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, and conflicts regarding the interpretation of trust documents.

Common Types of Trust and Estate Disputes

  • Will Contests: These disputes arise when a party challenges the validity of a will, often on grounds such as undue influence, fraud, or lack of testamentary capacity.

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty: Executors, trustees, or administrators are accused of failing to act in the best interest of the beneficiaries, mismanaging assets, or misappropriating funds.

  • Trust Interpretation and Administration Disputes: Conflicts over the meaning of terms in a trust document or disagreements about the decisions made by the trustee.

  • Accounting Disputes: Challenges related to the financial management and reporting of the estate or trust, including objections to the handling of assets.
