Estate Litigation & Fiduciary Dispute Resolution

We understand the sensitive dynamics of estate litigation and fiduciary disputes.

Our firm’s wealth of estate planning and administration experience provides substantial insight into the legal and practical duties of fiduciaries, including executors, administrators, trustees, guardians and agents appointed pursuant to power of attorneys. When scenarios do not play out as intended, Young Moore represents clients in estate, trust, fiduciary and guardianship disputes.

In cases of self-dealing, misappropriation of assets, and other breaches of fiduciary duty, we advocate for beneficiaries. We also assist with challenges to the legitimacy of wills, trusts, beneficiary designations and other documents procured by undue influence, fraud or tortious interference of others. In appropriate cases, we pursue the modification or termination of irrevocable trusts, the removal of executors or trustees, or the recovery of assets fraudulently transferred from trusts.

We understand the sensitive dynamics that are inherently present in these disputes and work diligently with our clients to identify appropriate strategies and resolutions in light of all relevant circumstances.
