Estate Litigation

The Law Offices of Gary Cornick, LLC, can represent you in a dispute concerning the interpretation of a will, the terms of a trust, or estate tax liability issues involving a  trust or estate. We represent heirs, beneficiaries, executors, personal representatives, and trustees in estate litigation.


We can represent either an heir or the estate in litigation involving the terms of the will, the status of an heir, or the testamentary capacity of the decedent. Our familiarity with state and federal probate and tax law also enables us to help resolve problems concerning the character of particular assets: Were they transferred by gift during life, were they duly transferred into trust, or are they property of the estate to pass by will? We can also represent either an heir or the personal representative in disputes concerning the administration of the estate and any problems relating to breach of fiduciary duty.


Trust Litigation - Whether you're a trustee or a beneficiary, we can represent your interests in a lawsuit concerning the administration of a trust, the sufficiency of an accounting, or title to ostensible trust assets. We represent parties to trust litigation who live out of state as well as local trustees or trust beneficiaries.


Guardians and Conservator Representation - Our experience with probate litigation and familiarity with  guardianship law enable us to provide reliable advice and representation in matters concerning the appointment or performance of guardians and conservators to manage the physical care or property of the elderly, the incapacitated, or minors who hold or inherit substantial property in their own name.
