When disputes arise in the trusts and estates context, much is at stake. Millions of dollars worth of assets may be in play. Beyond the financial aspect of these disputes, deep-seated emotions often rise to the forefront, adding a secondary layer of complexity to this highly nuanced area of law.
At David Lee Rice, A Professional Law Corporation, we understand the legal, practical and emotional aspects of trust and estate litigation. Our attorneys appreciate the importance of what is at stake. We bring clarity and direction to stormy situations.
Our attorneys and staff share the fundamental belief that every case is worthy of our full attention and effort, no matter the size, complexity or dollar value at stake.
Seasoned Litigators And Skilled Problem-Solvers
Estate and trust litigation encompasses a broad array of legal issues, including:
- Will contests
- Beneficiary disputes
- Breach of trust
- Breach of fiduciary duties
- Conservatorship disputes
- Disputes over estate claims
- Estate or trust accounting and management disputes
- Fiduciary disputes
In any estate case, challenges can arise at any step of the proceedings. Our attorneys are seasoned litigators with decades of combined experience in the courtroom. We have successfully handled complex, large-scale cases involving multimillion-dollar estates.
While we will never hesitate to pursue full-fledged litigation if necessary, we also make sure that clients understand the practical and financial realities of protracted court battles. To that end, we encourage clients to pursue out-of-court resolutions whenever possible. Our legal team enjoys a network of connections with mediators, psychologists and other professionals who can often help bring to light and resolve underlying issues that would otherwise inhibit a favorable outcome.
