California Inheritance Lawyers

The death of a loved one can be heart wrenching. During this emotional time, dealing with inheritance disputes can be especially difficult.

Perhaps there is ambiguous language contained in a decedent’s will, and estate beneficiaries don’t agree with the executor’s interpretation of the ambiguities.

Perhaps one sibling had assumed more of the caregiving duties toward the end of the decedent’s life and is fighting with their siblings for a larger share of the decedent’s trust.

Perhaps there are concerns the decedent was unduly influenced into altering their will or trust from their deathbed because the changes to the document drastically favor the decedent’s new spouse and significantly reduce the inheritances going to their children.

Perhaps a third party’s lawsuit against an estate or trust is threatening the beneficiaries’ inheritances.
