Estate Administration and Litigation

Our attorneys regularly administer estates, representing individuals as beneficiaries of estates and trusts, executors, trustees, incapacitated persons, surviving spouses, intestate heirs, and guardians, often involving multi-million dollar trusts and estates. We assist in the preparation and filing of court documents for will probate and administrator appointments, the collection and valuation of assets, tax elections and allocations, counsel with regard to the preparation of estate and fiduciary income tax returns, and assist in examining estate and gift tax returns by the Internal Revenue Service and state taxing authorities.

Our attorneys litigate will contests regarding undue influence and diminished capacity, spousal election, and also successfully defended will contests involving complex estates. Among the issues we have addressed in estate litigation are the interpretation of estate documents, including beneficiary designations, and challenges involving gifts, trust formation, and investment decisions.
