Estate, Trust and Probate

Henson & Efron’s estate and trust litigation practice combines the firm’s estate and trust group with its litigation group to focus on representing clients in disputes arising in estates, trusts and ancillary proceedings. Our attorneys work with family members, heirs, beneficiaries, creditors and professional fiduciaries to counsel clients on a wide variety of probate disputes, including will and trust contests, guardianship and conservatorship matters, fiduciary appointments, complex accounting disputes, corporate trust/bond proceedings, claims disputes, breach of fiduciary claims, and related matters.

As a result of Henson & Efron’s history of successful negotiations and resolutions, our probate and trust litigation attorneys are routinely engaged by other counsel to assist with complex trust and estate litigation matters in trial and appellate courts.
