We handle will and trust litigation, including contests and modification proceedings, elective share proceedings, guardianship, fiduciary, accounting disputes and proceedings, joint bank account litigation, beneficiary rights, lack of mental capacity cases involving testamentary capacity, homestead proceedings, undue influence and tortious interference claims, and abuse of power of attorney cases.
The probate and trust litigation issues are areas of law that are constantly changing and evolving and also have facets that are unique to Florida.

We understand that the probate process and related litigation issues are often upsetting for clients as they may involve a difficult family dynamic and also are occurring in the midst of a time of grieving. We strive to work with our clients to manage the case in accordance with their desires and to make the process less overwhelming.
