Trusts and Estates Litigation

Porzio attorneys regularly represent a broad range of clients who object to provisions contained in a decedent's will or who have been damaged by the administration of a trust or estate in which they have an interest.  Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the specific issues involved in the broad practice of estate litigation.  We have successfully litigated claims concerning:

  • Challenges to the validity of a will due to undue influence over the testator, lack of capacity of the testator, or defective execution of the will
  • Accounting proceedings to defend or challenge the management of an estate or trust
  • Contested guardianship proceedings to determine whether a guardian is needed and/or who should serve in that capacity
  • Fiduciary removal proceedings to remove an executor, trustee, or guardian due to incompetence or misconduct

Porzio's depth of knowledge and experience enables us to successfully resolve our clients' estate litigation matters.
