Our Estate Litigation Practice
With more than 60 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys can help you resolve any type of estate dispute, including will contests and breach of fiduciary duty actions. Will contests involve claims questioning the validity of a will. For example, a family member may claim that the loved one was compelled to create the will by another relative, which is known as undue influence. Additionally, will contests can involve claims that the deceased lacked the mental capacity to create the will or that the will is fraudulent.
Breach of fiduciary duty actions involve claims that a representative or trustee has failed in his or her duty to the estate. Some examples of a breach of fiduciary duty include:
- Fraud, theft, self-dealing and embezzlement
- Failure to properly disburse assets to the beneficiaries in a reasonable amount of time
- Mishandling of investments or assets
- Making decisions that are in conflict with the best interest of the beneficiaries
At our Virginia law firm, we help clients who wish to contest a will or bring an action against a trustee or representative. We also represent those who have been accused of breaching a fiduciary duty. Regardless of your position, we can help you pursue a successful resolution to your estate dispute.
