Trusts & Estates


Our lawyers handle every facet of trusts & estate litigation in Surrogate’s Courts.  We have represented trustees against claims of breach of fiduciary duty and other improper conduct.  We have represented the proponents of wills and executors against charges of undue influence, improper will execution, lack of testamentary capacity and failure to gather and distribute assets, and other claims.  We have also represented beneficiaries of both trusts and wills in disputes with trustees and executors over the validity and terms of the will or trust and the conduct of the fiduciary.  And we have represented trustees in disputes with other trustees.
