When a legal contest arises following the death of a loved one or due to the mental incapacity of a family member, our dedicated attorneys can litigate your case.

Common Estate Litigation Cases

Following death, incapacity, or other traumatic experiences, emotions run high and decisions are sometimes made without careful consideration. Sibling rivalry, complicated family dynamics, or tension with current and former spouses can lead to disagreements on decisions involving the division of assets and other estate matters. In addition, disputes with creditors may arise over what the estate owes or the validity of a will or trust may be questioned due to alleged abuse. O’Neil & Rueppel, LLP, ensures that the wishes of the deceased or incapacitated are carried out as they were expressed.

Common probate and trust litigation cases involve:

  • Contesting the validity or terms of a will or trust
  • Disputes over ownership of trust or estate property
  • Trust termination or modification
  • Wording of wills and trusts
  • Removal and appointment of trustees and executors
  • Creditor claims
