Representation For Trust And Estate Litigation

At the Law Office of Daniel I. Spector, our lawyers have advocated for the rights of heirs, beneficiaries, trustees, administrators of estates, conservators, attorneys-in-fact, private fiduciaries and a range of other individuals and entities engaged in disputes concerning trusts, estates and other assets left behind after the passing of an individual.

We understand that the complexity of trust and estate litigation only intensifies the already mounting tensions brought about by the infirmity or passing of a loved one, and/or the perceived manipulation of someone of that circumstance.  We invest time and energy listening to our clients to understand their histories and concerns in order to develop efficient, effective strategies to win.  Through our experience, hard work and insight, we lead the client to succeed.

Ultimately, we consistently and repeatedly achieve our clients’ goals as quickly and efficiently as possible. Sometimes that means our dispute resolves in mediation; sometimes that means our dispute ends in trial.  However, the fight will end when our clients’ goals are met.
