Trust & Probate Litigation
Litigation can arise from all aspects of the administration of trusts and estates. Our attorneys represent trusts, estates, and beneficiaries of trusts and estates in a wide range of trust and probate litigation, including:
  • Will and trust interpretation
  • Will contests
  • Breaches of fiduciary duty
  • Resolution of disputed claims against estates
Disputes over trusts and estates frequently touch on multiple areas of expertise. Our depth of experience in tax, trusts, estates and fiduciary relationships allows our trial lawyers to create teams of experts to address every aspect of these complex problems.

Tonkon Torp's lawyers strongly advocate our clients’ positions on the broad spectrum of issues raised in will contests, trust disputes and claims of fiduciary wrongdoing. We regularly resolve cases in probate courts and other courts and agencies. But we never lose sight of the need for common sense and creativity in addressing these difficult and highly personal disputes.
