Estate Litigation

At Godwin Gilbert Law Firm, we understand that estate-related disputes can be emotionally charged and legally complex. Our experienced attorneys are dedicated to advocating for our clients in estate litigation matters, providing skilled representation to protect their rights and interests.

Breach of Fiduciary Duty Claims:

When executors, administrators, or trustees fail to fulfill their fiduciary duties and act in the best interests of the beneficiaries, it can lead to breach of fiduciary duty claims. Our firm can represent beneficiaries or other interested parties in such cases, holding the fiduciaries accountable for their actions and seeking remedies on behalf of our clients.

Disputes Over Asset Distribution:

Estate disputes may arise when beneficiaries disagree on the distribution of assets or question the validity of specific bequests. We can assist in resolving these disputes through negotiation, mediation, or, if necessary, litigation. Our goal is to achieve a fair and equitable resolution that upholds the intentions of the deceased and protects the rights of the beneficiaries.

Challenging Actions by Executors or Trustees:

Executors and trustees have significant responsibilities in managing and distributing estate assets. If beneficiaries suspect misconduct or improper actions by executors or trustees, they may challenge these actions in court. Our firm can provide dedicated representation to assert the rights of beneficiaries and seek appropriate remedies for any breaches of duty.

Will Contests and Disputes:

Challenging the validity of a will may occur when beneficiaries or interested parties believe the document was executed under undue influence, coercion, or lack of capacity. We can represent clients in will contests, ensuring that the deceased’s true intentions are respected and the will’s validity is appropriately determined.

Skilled Litigation and Resolution:

Estate litigation requires a nuanced understanding of both legal and emotional complexities. Our attorneys have the expertise to navigate the intricacies of estate law and the empathy to handle sensitive family dynamics. We strive to achieve favorable outcomes for our clients through strategic advocacy, negotiation, and, if necessary, litigation in court.

We take a client-centered approach, working closely with our clients to understand their concerns, goals, and priorities.
