Legal estate issues may sometimes require intervention by a court or some other decision-making process in order to move to a resolution. Will or capacity challenges, beneficiary disputes, and passing of accounts may require you to interact with the legal system.

Our goal is to bring your matter to a close in the most efficient and beneficial way possible. We can help if you are bringing an action or if an action has been brought against you, including:

  • Challenges regarding capacity or the validity of a will
