Wills and Estates

Disputes between family members can arise as families wrap up the affairs of lost loved ones. These disputes can be hard for families to resolve on their own because of the emotions and grief involved. Traditional litigation can take years to resolve and can break family bonds and bank accounts.

Using the Collaborative Process for your estate administration or litigation matter creates a constructive forum so that families can resolve their issues without a drawn out legal battle. The approach supports everyone’s best intentions. Items that can be resolved include:

  • Disputes on the validity of a will or trust
  • Interpreting a will or trust
  • Disputes on creditor claims
  • Disagreements about the distribution of personal property items
  • Business succession issues
  • Disputes on valuing assets and selling property
