Probate, Estate and Trust Litigation

You can count on our experience in resolving inheritance disputes, breaches of fiduciary duties and other estate-related controversies

In handling the incapacity of a family member or managing a deceased family member’s estate or trust, disagreements often develop that drive apart loved ones and friends. These disagreements often include appropriate care decisions, financial decisions, the division of assets, or the determination of beneficiaries.

Many times, these matters can be worked out through communication. Other times, however, litigation is necessary to resolve disputes and protect loved ones. Our estate controversy attorneys have more than 50 years of experience navigating these disputes. While we strive to resolve these disputes without costly litigation by fostering communication, we always stand ready to protect our clients’ interest through the state and federal judicial systems.

Our Arizona probate litigation attorneys are dedicated to meeting your needs. We can address any conflict, including those involving:

  • Contested probates due to subsequent testamentary documents

  • Breach of fiduciary duties

  • Contested guardianships or conservatorships

  • Medical and financial exploitation of vulnerable individuals

  • Wills contests and contested trusts due to undue influence, lack of capacity, duress or financial exploitation

  • Financial exploitation and adult protection.

Oftentimes, probate litigation will encompass other areas of the laws, such as real estate, partnership disputes, and other legal issues. Supported by our team of professionals, we are able to leverage our firm’s experience in nearly all areas of law to efficiently and economically engage any legal dispute involved in your probate matter.

We offer personalized service. We will take the time to learn about your needs and the unique facts of your case. When we design a legal strategy, it will be built specifically for your case with your goals in mind.

Our attorneys frequently lecture on topics related to probate litigation. We provide continuing education seminars to colleagues throughout the area, and several of our attorneys have served in leadership positions in important legal organizations, such as state and local bar associations. We have built a trusted reputation that we are willing to put to work for you.
