St. Paul Estate Litigation Attorneys

Wills and trusts represent the deceased's final wishes. However, disputes often erupt over the interpretation and validity of these documents. Located in St. Paul, the attorneys at PFB Law, Professional Association, help clients throughout Minnesota protect their financial and property interests during will contests and trust disputes, and make sure the deceased's true wishes are carried out.

Contest A Will

The decision to contest a will must be made carefully. Disputes regarding the validity or interpretation of a will can cause expensive and time-consuming litigation. Because these disputes often involve related individuals, family rifts can occur.

At PFB Law, Professional Association, we help personal representatives, or executors, of estates protect wills during the probate process. Our lawyers also help beneficiaries of the will, or other family members and friends of the deceased, contest the will and attempt to change the way property is distributed.

At PFB Law, Professional Association, our attorneys are effective, efficient legal problem solvers. We are constantly looking for innovative solutions to our clients' most complex disputes. We use every legal tool at our disposal — including negotiation and mediation — to help clients settle their disputes without the time and costs of the courtroom. However, when litigation is necessary to protect our clients' interests, we are the strong courtroom advocates clients need to enforce their rights.

Representing Trustees' And Beneficiaries During Trust Litigation

Trustees have many legal duties. Chief among them is the duty to treat beneficiaries impartially and manage trust assets prudently. Failure to fulfill these responsibilities — either intentionally or mistakenly — can result in disputes among beneficiaries and expose trustees to personal liability.

At PFB Law, Professional Association, we represent both trustees and beneficiaries during trust litigation. Our lawyers help trustees defend against fiduciary breach allegations and protect themselves from personal liability. We also help beneficiaries seek reimbursement for improper trust management and assist with trustee removal and replacement actions.

Common trust-related disputes include:

  • Investment disputes
  • Trust mismanagement
  • Misappropriation
  • Accounting disputes
  • Disputes regarding the trust's terms
  • Disputes regarding the validity of the trust
  • Breach of fiduciary duties
