Lightfoot litigators understand the delicate nature of trustee and estate claims.
When a trust or estate matter becomes contentious, an already complicated issue becomes even more delicate. Lightfoot attorneys understand that these sensitive cases are often emotionally charged. We seek to preserve our clients' business and family relationships whenever possible and strive to achieve the best resolutions.
From probate court to state and federal courts, Lightfoot has successfully defended claims in a wide range of trust and probate lawsuits, both in trial and on appeal. Our attorneys are also frequently called upon to represent banks, investment professionals, and corporate and individual trustees. These engagements often involve families and closely held businesses, and our lawyers recognize the careful balance of interests involved in reaching a favorable outcome, whether in or out of the courtroom.
