Estate and Trust Litigation Law

Are you a corporate fiduciary, large financial institution, charitable organization, or individual fiduciary or beneficiary involved in a dispute over a trust, estate, or conservatorship? Is your objective to protect property in your estate or protect your own liability, or are you trying to avoid probate?
Adam Phillips represents clients in litigated disputes over estate and trust assets or distributions. Estate litigation involves matters arising from distribution of assets to beneficiaries after the death of an individual. This may include trusts, a fund created by an individual or group intended to benefit another individual or group. Trust litigation specifically involves the administration and distribution of a trust.
Usually trusts are created with conditions on the distribution of the assets in the account and are managed by a third party trustee. Adam Phillips can help you set up a simple trust, make amendments or modifications to trusts, dispute estate distributions, or defend trustees in defense of distributions.
