Probate and Guardianship Litigation

Probate and Guardianship Litigation

The Probate and Guardianship Litigation Team of MehaffyWeber combines strength, experience and resources to handle today’s highly-specialized Probate and Guardianship litigation often involving complex trusts, estates, guardianships and similar matters at both the trial and appellate levels in a wide range of jurisdictions. Members of this group have successfully represented individuals, charitable organizations, educational institutions, banks and trust companies in matters spanning the full spectrum of probate and guardianship issues.

As part of our firmwide commitment to anticipate legal problems rather than react to them, our team includes both estate planning lawyers and trial lawyers who regularly confer on litigation prevention techniques for our trust and estate clients. Our attorneys work alongside executors, trustees, guardians and heirs. Our attorneys also work with banks and trust companies to improve the chance of avoiding litigation.

If litigation becomes unavoidable, our attorneys succeed for clients through well-planned and well-coordinated preparation and trial presentation. Our representation includes pre-litigation fact review, advice and strategic planning, pleadings preparation, document discovery, and depositions. We explore mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods as potential ways to resolve a case.
