Stein Sperling’s estates and trusts attorneys value advanced planning to best and most completely address the intricacies of carrying out clients’ wishes, or those of their loved ones, upon death. We carefully anticipate possible points of interpersonal and financial conflict through both the preparatory and administration processes. These can include issues of competency, undue influence or questionable changes to estate planning documents.

When disputes arise, our estates and trusts attorneys work side-by-side with members of our firm’s experienced litigation group to represent trustees, executors, and beneficiaries in probate and trust administration matters, as well as in contested and uncontested guardianships and caveat proceedings. Our estates and trusts litigators work hard to maintain our stellar reputation for zealous and effective courtroom advocacy without losing sight of the emotional challenges often laced within.
