Probate Litigation

Our firm’s real estate focus enables us to preserve and protect the most valuable assets of a trust.  We have represented trustees and beneficiaries in a variety of probate disputes involving commercial, residential and mixed-use property and the closely held businesses operating on trust property. Our attorneys have litigated issues arising out of testamentary gifts, devises and bequests of both current and future ownership interests.  We have recovered trust property through Heggstad Petitions, unlawful detainer, forcible detainer and ejectment. We have litigated no-contest provisions, breach of promises to make a will, breach of fiduciary duty, financial elder abuse claims, and litigated petitions for removal of trustee, for instructions, and for receivership.
