A Probate And Trust Litigation Attorney Since 1976
Though litigation related to a will or trust dispute is relatively rare, when it does arise you will need forceful legal representation if you want to fight for your rights as a devisee or beneficiary. At my firm, Gary G Bagdasarian, Attorney at Law, I represent clients throughout the Fresno, California, area who are involved in probate and trust litigation.
Contesting A Will Vs. Trust Litigation
Probate litigation and trust litigation have a great deal in common. In both cases, one or more parties raise an objection to a part of the will or trust. They may also challenge the validity of the document itself. Common arguments include that the deceased person lacked the capacity to create the will or trust, or was coerced into creating it.
Whether you are engaged in litigation over a will or a trust, the proceedings can be very complicated, which is why you need an experienced lawyer to advocate on your behalf. I am a skilled litigator who will help you make a persuasive case in court.
Save Time And Money With Mediation
As with other forms of litigation, it is often possible to avoid the time and expense of going to trial by using alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Mediation is one of the most common forms of ADR. In mediation, the parties agree to sit down and try to work out a resolution with the help of a neutral third party. I am an experienced mediator who has helped numerous families settle probate and trust litigation.
