In recent years, estate litigation has become more prevalent. Common cases include beneficiaries making claims against the estate believing that the maker of a Will was inappropriately influenced to leave an inheritance, or a disproportionately larger share of the estate, to others. Sometimes, claims are made against the Executor for failing to perform his or her responsibilities with regard to the estate. Other times, the estate, through its Executor, must bring or defend claims involving creditors or the taxing authorities.Estate Litigation Learn More

Sadly, many of them are unprepared for the significant financial burdens it places on their family’s hard earned savings. Financial devastation looms large for a family facing ongoing care at a rate of $8,000 – $10,000 per month.Elder Law Learn More
