Texas Trust and Estate Litigation Lawyer

Notable Attorneys

The administration of trusts and estates can be complex and disputes frequently arise. Often, these disputes are among family members and can stretch family relationships to their breaking point. I have the experience to efficiently guide you through trust and estate disputes, keeping in mind both your monetary and non-monetary goals.

After a family member dies or becomes incapacitated, issues related to property ownership, creditor rights, and/or beneficiaries’ interests can arise and delay the settling of an estate. In addition, if a will, trust, or other estate planning document is not clear or contains inconsistent terms, disputes among the named beneficiaries could arise. Finally, executors and trustees have specific fiduciary duties, are held to strict standards of accountability, and are often caught in the middle of managing beneficiaries’ needs and honoring the intent expressed in a will or trust instrument. When a resolution cannot be reached through negotiation, litigation may become necessary.
