Trust & Estate Litigation
Many lawyers involved in trust and estate litigation are either fundamentally estate planners with limited or no experience in handling a contested matter in the trial courts or civil litigators with no subject matter expertise in the law of trusts, estates, and estate and gift taxes. Our firm is different. Brillant Law Firm has years of experience in the courts and is one of the few firms that truly specializes in the complex area of trust and estate litigation. Our trust and estate litigation clients are at a competitive advantage when engaging our firm to represent their interests. Our lawyers are experts in the field, have advanced legal degrees, are Certified Specialists in Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Law, and have many victories in both the Superior Courts and the Appellate Courts.
Our attorneys will litigate against any firm – large or small and will deliver on your objectives. Trust and Estate cases involve contests of trusts and wills, claims of breach of fiduciary duty, accounting actions or even claims of professional negligence by estate planners and other professionals providing estate planning advice. The many accomplishments we have obtained are due in part to the credibility we bring to court. Our lawyers are all comfortable in cross-examining witnesses, arguing arcane points of trust law and deposing hostile witnesses. Just as importantly, our lawyers have a reputation among courts and opposing counsel that we know how to build consensus with beneficiaries and court-appointed counsel to resolve disputes.
Our firm has had enormous success in the trial courts in probate matters of all types. Because of the successes in court, the firm has the credibility to obtain the most favorable settlements of disputes for our clients in mediation or even before there is litigation. Our lawyers counsel clients about litigation avoidance and can provide advice that only comes from years of experience in the courtroom. Our priority will always be to finalize agreements with solutions that benefit you – our client.
