    Trust, Estate & Probate LitigationWhen a trustee, executor or personal administrator is accused of not fulfilling his or her fiduciary duties, the matter can become contested. At SBEMP, our trust, estate, and probate practice represents trustees, executors or personal administers, and beneficiaries in trust and estate disputes and litigation. Our trust and estate attorneys have in-depth knowledge of the legal responsibilities of trustees and executor or personal administrator.  Our attorneys know what to look for when a fiduciary is allegedly acting irresponsibly or illegally, and how to uncover valuable information to serve as evidence either for or against a trustee or executor or personal administrator.

    Trust and estate disputes and litigation can also result from disagreement over who was named in the trust or will as a beneficiary or a last-minute trust update prior to the decedent’s death. If you believe that your loved one was not able to make decisions regarding his or her trust or estate and was manipulated while incapacitated, our attorneys can help you.
