    An Overview of Estate and Trust Litigation

    The field of estate and trust litigation encompasses a wide variety of issues, including conservatorships, guardianships, will contests, breaches of fiduciary duties, trust modification, allegations of undue influence or fraudulent conveyances, and testamentary capacity.

    Estate litigation often occurs when the executor or other representative of an estate disagrees with a claim against the estate. Another major area of estate litigation is will contests, in which the potential beneficiary or heir of an estate decides to challenge a will.

    Estate and trust litigation is primarily governed by state probate codes. Additionally, there are a number of standards regarding proper fiduciary conduct–such as the Uniform Prudent Investor Act and Uniform Principal and Income Act–by which the practices of fiduciaries are judged. Estate and trust attorneys can work with a variety of clients, including trustees, executors, administrators, guardians, conservators, and all forms of beneficiaries.

    Poorly devised estate plans can lead to some of the most contentious litigation, turning family members against each other. Estate and trust lawyers must also understand the psychology of dealing with difficult family relationships and deeply emotional experiences such as death.
