Why an estate plan is important
Wills are legal documents that most people associate with their last wishes. However, a will and an estate plan are not the same thing.
Wills are one component of an estate plan. A comprehensive estate plan includes advance directives, power of attorney, and trusts (when applicable).
Estate plans are a legal blueprint outlining your requests. It’s one of the most effective ways to avoid family drama and arguments over your assets when you’re no longer around to ensure your requests are honored.
However, even with an estate plan in place, legal challenges can arise. That’s when our attorneys get involved. We help you resolve estate plan disputes and other legal challenges.

What is an estate planning dispute?
An estate planning dispute arises when there are conflicts or disagreements among family members, beneficiaries, or other interested parties regarding the distribution of assets, the interpretation of a will or trust, the validity of estate planning documents, or other matters related to an individual’s estate plan.
How can an estate attorney help with disputes?
An estate planning attorney experienced in dispute resolution can assist by providing legal advice, representing clients in negotiations or court proceedings, interpreting the deceased’s intentions as expressed in estate planning documents, and working to find amicable solutions. They also can pursue legal remedies when necessary.
Can estate planning disputes be resolved without going to court?
