For an estate or trust to be the subject of litigation, the assets must be of significant value and the violation of duties egregious. There exists a tort for interference with the expectancy of inheritance and a separate claim for abuse of confidence if the circumstances warrant it. In the recent past, I settled trust litigation in an amount exceeding 5 million dollars.
HOW I CAN HELP:
- If you believe that there has been untoward conduct, I can discuss with you the case law that might apply to the creation and administration of an estate or trust.
