Will Contests · Power of Attorney Challenges · Lawsuits Against Trustees

At the Kridel Law Group, we have more than 40 years of experience representing clients in complex estate litigation. Types of cases with which we have significant experience include:

  • Challenges to the scope of powers of attorney: Will it allow the attorney-in-fact to create a living will on behalf of the holder of the POA? Will it allow the attorney-in-fact to remove the POA holder from a nursing home without any challenge?
  • Heirship determinations, particularly in intestacy situations where a person has died without a will
  • Claims that appointed trustees have breached their fiduciary duties regarding inter vivos trusts, testamentary trusts, charitable trusts, special needs trusts, or other trusts.
