The Peninsula Center for Estate and Lifelong Planning in Williamsburg, Virginia, represents clients in contested and uncontested probate and trust matters.
While estate planning can often eliminate or reduce the need to go to court to address estate and trust issues, it is sometimes necessary to go before a judge to resolve a dispute or answer a question. When that happens, you are going to want an experienced attorney by your side. We invite you to call us at 757-969-1900 to arrange a consultation with a lawyer regarding any of the following matters that may arise.
Estate And Trust Litigation
From will contests to beneficiary disputes to removal of a personal representative or trustee, we can handle it all. Estate and trust litigation differs from traditional litigation and requires special expertise in the areas of will and trust law as well as taxation that most litigation attorneys lack. Our attorneys combine litigation experience with expertise in estate and tax law.
Trust Reformation Or Modification
Virginia's Uniform Trust Code enacted in 2006 provides a great deal of flexibility for dealing with irrevocable trusts. Under certain circumstances, irrevocable trusts can be modified or even revoked by petition to the circuit court having jurisdiction over the trust. Attorney Helena Mock is very experienced with the process and has successfully modified and terminated numerous trusts since 2006.
Guardianships And Conservatorships
Our attorneys are experienced in handling both contested and noncontested guardianship and conservatorship cases as well as in assisting with the administration of the estates of incapacitated persons after the appointment of a guardian and/or conservator.
Litigation Services You Can Trust
Whether you have a concern that can be resolved only with the approval of the court or you are involved in a will or trust dispute, our team at The Peninsula Center for Estate and Lifelong Planning can help. To schedule a meeting, please contact us at 757-969-1900 or by email.
