Skilled at Navigating Family Dynamics

Our trust and estate litigators work hand-in-hand with our estate planningtrust administration, and tax attorneys to help clients navigate and understand technical areas of law and find creative and cost-effective solutions to their disputes. We will work tirelessly to find an out-of-court solution first, but, when settlement is not possible, we will always be prepared to try your case.

Trust and estate disputes pose unique challenges because they involve the interplay of numerous areas of law, technical procedural requirements, and complex personal and emotional dynamics.  Buckley Law’s extensive experience in estate planning, litigation, family law, protective proceedings, and creditor’s rights makes us well suited to tackle these types of disputes.

Our firm can assist you with all types of trust and estate litigation, large or small, including:

  • Challenges to will and trusts
  • Intentional interference with anticipated inheritance claims
  • Trustee misconduct claims
  • Trust interpretation or reformation
  • Trustee removal and replacement
  • Disputed creditor claims
  • Guardianship and Conservatorship protective proceedings
  • Financial abuse claims against an elderly, or vulnerable person
  • Contested accountings and Trustee reports
  • Fraudulent transfer claims

Our trust and estate litigation team help fiduciaries, beneficiaries, protected persons, heirs, and creditors get what they are entitled to receive. Everyone hopes their assets and estate plan will be distributed and administered fairly and without dispute. A well-drafted estate plan can help, but unfortunately, it does not guarantee that disputes and disagreements will not arise amongst family members, fiduciaries, and other beneficiaries. Whether you are a fiduciary who has been sued or accused of breaching your fiduciary duties, a beneficiary who needs to pursue a breach of trust, a creditor who is owed money, or a person who needs help navigating a guardianship and conservatorship issue, the trust and estate litigators at Buckley Law can help.
