Probate And Trust Litigation Lawyer

Legal Help In Southern California And Nevada

Regardless of the legal issues in question, the responsibility of a successful litigator never changes: Shield a client from liability and vigorously advocate for his or her interests.

With more than 20 years of experience in civil litigation, Los Angeles and Las Vegas attorney Elliot S. Blut has successfully represented individual and business clients in high-stakes cases in both California and Nevada. While legal disputes concerning a loved one's estate require the same zealous advocacy as any other civil claim, probate and trust litigation also requires an acknowledgement of potentially sensitive family dynamics and the possibility of long-lasting family fractures. In our estate litigation practice, we balance unwavering commitment to a client's interests with strategic consideration of greater family dynamics.

Our Firm Has Answers To Your Questions About Estate Disputes

Estate litigation is a broad term that encompasses several types of legal claims. You may wish to pursue (or require counsel to defend against) allegations of any of the following:

  • Improper trust administration, including failure to make timely distributions to beneficiaries, unwise investment decisions, self-dealing and other forms of breach of a trustee's fiduciary duty
  • Fraud or undue influence in the execution of wills or other estate planning documents that lead to unfair outcomes during the administration of an estate
  • Improper acts by a will executor or personal representative, including payment of excessive fees

These are undoubtedly difficult situations for all parties involved. Our role as litigators and legal guides is to vigorously protect your legal interests, while taking every available opportunity to minimize conflict during what is a difficult time for families grieving the loss of a loved one.
