Probate & Trust Litigation
Our attorneys believe in aggressively pursuing justice for our clients.
Too often, amidst the emotional turbulence of the death of a loved one, our clients are faced with a secondary trauma. They find out that a family member, trusted caregiver, or even a stranger has defrauded their loved one of money or property. Our firm has seen many variations of this problem, from properties transferred out of a trust by undue influence of a caregiver or even family member, to a will created by an elderly person while they were being persuaded by someone who held their trust.
Our firm helps clients by holding the wrongdoers accountable. Our track record of success is undisputed. We can help you recover your property.
