Trust and Estate Litigation

Even with the best of estate plans, disputes arise.   GDWO’s litigation counsel works alongside its Trusts and Estates attorneys when working on disputes stemming from an estate, a trust, and the affairs of a decedent.  While negotiation and settlement are valuable tools employed by our attorneys to seek equitable and efficient resolution of these types of matters, litigation in Surrogate’s Court and Supreme Court in New York State is sometimes necessary.  Will contests, capacity issues, trust administration, abuse of authority under Powers of Attorney are some areas where litigation arises.  We represent Executors, Trustees, other fiduciaries, beneficiaries, and other interested persons in all types of contested estate or trust matters.  GDWO will zealously advocate for you throughout this process.
