It's complicated, especially among family.

Probate and Trust Litigation Attorneys

Disagreements among family members concerning the distribution of property or the decedent’s true intentions can be emotionally difficult. We appreciate and balance the financial aspects of the litigation with the long-term personal issues that often motivate familial litigants.

Bill Boyes, John Farina and Peter Matwiczyk are probate and trust litigators, not merely estate planning attorneys practicing outside their expertise and experience. Each has successfully litigated hundreds of estate and trust disputes.

These types of disputes often arise when a trustee has mismanaged or misappropriated trust assets, or when a trustee has not properly cooperated with trust beneficiaries. If a will or trust is challenged because it was not properly signed and witnessed, or because it’s determined that, at the time of execution, the decedent did not have requisite mental capacity to make informed decisions concerning the distribution of their estate, our attorneys work to effectively litigate or resolve these disputes.

  • Will and trust contests
