Trust and Estates Litigation
As litigation surrounding family trusts and estates continues to rise, Briggs and Morgan maintains the highest qualified litigators and trust and estate attorneys to guide clients through complex and, at times, emotional disputes.
Our estate planning attorneys have invaluable knowledge in the areas of wills, trusts, estate taxes (state and federal), gift taxes and generation-skipping taxes as well as unique assets, such as closely held businesses, partnerships, real estate and life insurance. We also understand and provide advice on charitable trusts and foundations, marital and charitable deductions, QTIP Trust, retirement planning, revocable and irrevocable trusts, as well as tax laws related to charitable clients who have formed nonprofit corporations or trusts.
Briggs and Morgan’s trust and estate litigators provide skillful representation and advocacy through aspects of trust and estate litigation. We have tried a variety of cases in the trust and estate area including trust and will contests, tax controversies, breach of fiduciary duty, removal of trustees, undue influence, and disputes following the death or incompetence of a family member.
Whether representing banks, trust companies, or individuals, our goal is to determine the best resolution possible. Often negotiating a settlement is the best result. However, when defending legal, business and family disputes, our attorneys are experienced litigators who will see the matter successfully through trial and appeal, if necessary.
