Williams Parker Attorneys at Law Sarasota Attorneys

Estate & Trust Litigation

An estate plan is created expecting the stated testamentary wishes will be carried out with ease. However, controversy may arise between family members, beneficiaries, and fiduciaries. Also, at times, the wishes of the testator may need to be clarified through interpretive procedures such as court modifications or beneficiary agreements. Our estate and trust litigation attorneys are skilled in the unique rules, specialized procedures, and high stakes that apply when estate plans or estate and trust administrations are challenged or questioned. Additionally, our estate and trust litigation attorneys are supported by our estate planning attorneys, a number of whom are certified by the Florida Bar in wills, trusts, and estates or tax. This combination of expertise, experience, and support makes our estate and trust litigation attorneys well-qualified to handle the most significant estate and trust litigation matters, whether carried out in the courtroom or otherwise.

Our clients include fiduciaries (both individuals and corporate fiduciaries), beneficiaries, and other interested parties in matters involving trust contests, will contests, accounting actions, breach of fiduciary duty claims, trust and will construction actions, reformation suits, estate and trust administration disputes, as well as other fiduciary litigation. Many involve complicated family relationships, technical analysis, and sensitive issues. Our estate and trust litigation attorneys work closely with our clients to navigate the practical, economic, and emotional obstacles that inevitably surface during these disputes, and cooperatively develop a strategy to manage them in the most efficient and effective manner. In these matters, success not only means protecting a sizable estate or trust, but ensuring that someone’s important final testamentary wishes are carried out. Our estate and trust litigation attorneys always work to find creative ways to resolve disputes before a lawsuit is filed, but when a lawsuit cannot be avoided, our estate and trust litigation attorneys have the experience and skill to litigate these complex, and often delicate, disputes.
