Brinkley Morgan’s Estate & Trust Litigation attorneys represent trustees, personal representatives, guardians, charitable organizations, family businesses, fiduciaries, and beneficiaries in a full range of estate, trust, and fiduciary disputes. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling complex and sophisticated estate, trust and tax issues in state and federal courts.
Our Estate & Trust Litigation attorneys work hand-in-hand with our Estate Planning & Administration attorneys to help establish guidelines and policies to reduce the potential for litigation related to wills and trusts. When a conflict arises over a will or trust, our Estate & Trust Litigation attorneys work to resolve the dispute outside of the courtroom, whenever possible. However, when litigation is unavoidable, our experienced trial lawyers aggressively advocate to protect our clients’ interests.
