Trust, Estate & Probate Litigation

R&A has extensive experience in all areas of the probate court system. We have successfully litigated many disputed trustee and beneficiary claims. We handle the following issues:

  • Beneficiary Trust Disputes (Trust and Will Contests)

  • Probates

  • Accountings

  • Conservatorships

  • Guardianships

  • Elder Abuse Claims

  • All court-related claims and administrative procedures


Upon your death, the probate process involves paying debts you owe and transferring assets to your beneficiaries. Probate courts oversee this process. Some of these procedures vary by state. If you do not have a trust in place, the court will inventory your property, pay bills or take out any taxes that are due, using the existing assets to make these payments. 

A comprehensive estate plan will make this process much easier, especially for the executor of your estate, whose main goal is to carry out your wishes. Your assets are protected when you have an estate plan in place.
