Trust And Estate Litigation
When a loved one passes away, the best scenario is that the death will bring the family closer together to comfort each other over the loss. That is not always the case. Oftentimes, the disputes arising out of a loved one’s death can plunge the survivors into a maelstrom of complicated litigation. Smith & Fawer attorneys understand the emotions surrounding this type of litigation and work hard to insure their clients obtain the share of their loved one’s estate to which they are entitled.
