When a loved one dies or becomes incapacitated, it can be an incredibly difficult time for family and friends. These situations are made even more challenging when disputes arise over a will, a trust, or the actions of someone in a position of power. At the Ross Law Firm, LLC, I am experienced in handling estate and will disputes. I guide clients through the process of negotiating and litigating these sensitive matters, providing the highest quality representation at a reasonable price.
A fiduciary is a person who holds property, assets or power for the benefit of another person. This could be any number of people, including a family member, a lawyer, accountant or financial advisor. In some situations, a fiduciary may not act in the best interests of the beneficiaries, which can lead to litigation. I represent fiduciaries who have been wrongfully accused of inappropriate conduct, as well as beneficiaries who believe that a fiduciary has acted improperly. In many cases, I am able to help clients resolve these disputes without litigation. However, when necessary, I zealously seek to represent my clients to help protect their financial interests or their integrity.
Will or Trust Disputes
As the principal attorney at The Ross Law Firm, LLC, I represent clients whenever there is a dispute over the terms of a will or a trust. After the death of a loved one, family members may react in a highly emotional way, leading to disagreements about the estate. Wills and trusts are subject to different interpretations and may be challenged in court. When possible, I will attempt to achieve a peaceful resolution of disputes involving wills or trusts. However, if litigation is necessary, I represent my clients’ interests in court, through challenging a will or trust to enforce a beneficiary’s right or defending a provision of a will. Throughout the process, I provide an objective evaluation of my clients’ case to ensure they have the necessary information to determine how to best proceed with the case.
