We offer a full range of estate planning services, including:

Jackson County Estate Litigation Attorneys

We assist with the administration of estates for people and families who have lost loved ones. If you are a personal representative or other heir, we can help you probate and oversee your loved one's assets to ensure that their wishes are followed.

In the event a dispute arises during the course of the administration of an estate, litigation may be necessary. Our seasoned litigators routinely advise clients in disputes involving a trust or estate, and are prepared to prosecute or defend cases involving:

  • Will or trust contests
  • Allegations of a breach of fiduciary duty
  • Challenges by beneficiaries
  • Objections to accountings
  • Removal or substitution of a trustee or personal representative
