Wills & Estate Litigation

Wills and estate litigation is a complex and unique area of law. Our clients in this area fall into two categories: those who feel aggrieved and wish to challenge a loved one’s will, trust or the administration of the estate (plaintiffs), and those who have had legal action taken against them (defendants).

Dear Mr. Steinman, Thank you very much for all your efforts on my behalf. I am grateful to have received my share of the monies from the insurance company.
