Timely Action Is Needed

The assets underlying the estate or trust may be in jeopardy. They may be improperly disposed of and their value diminished through action or through inaction on the part of the personal representative or trust administrator.

We can provide sound advice regarding a contested will or the integrity of the estate or trust administration. If our analysis shows that you have a valid complaint, we can provide assertive and timely representation to protect your rights and interests, and the value of the estate or trust assets.
