Estate Litigation Attorney Serving Families in Corpus Christi

Because estate litigation usually involves substantial assets, a network of parties with different rights and responsibilities, and a complex set of laws governing every facet of the estate, any disputes that arise may be exceedingly difficult to manage. When poorly handled, estate litigation may incur unnecessary legal fees and even cause lifelong rifts between friends and family members.

Because we have witnessed the far-reaching consequences of estate disputes, our experienced estate litigation attorney at Rothschild Law Firm provides representation that is both aggressive and compassionate. We understand that, while you need a favorable outcome, you likely want to spend as little time in the courtroom as possible. We will do everything in our power to negotiate a fair resolution without going to trial—but if that is not possible, we will fight for your best interests with commitment and tenacity.

The sooner we take on your case, the sooner we can build an airtight litigation strategy. Call (361) 866-5437 today.

What Is Estate Litigation?

Estate litigation encompasses a wide range of disputes. Texas has its own set of laws governing all aspects of an estate, from determining heirship to asset distribution. Litigation may occur after the creator of a will has passed away, or it may involve an ongoing series of disputes over the terms of a living trust. In all circumstances, our estate litigation attorney is ready to fight for the best possible outcome.

Some of the more common types of estate litigation cases we handle include:

  • Will contests—when a party claims a last will and testament is invalid. A will may be invalid if it was created by someone who was mentally or legally incompetent, or they were a victim of undue influence.
  • Trust litigation—when a party disputes a trust (e.g. contesting a trust’s validity, claiming a breach of fiduciary duty, challenging heirship, etc.).
  • Guardianship contests—when a party challenges the guardianship of a ward or estate. They may claim the guardianship is unnecessary, or the guardian should be someone else.
  • Removal of executors or fiduciaries—when a party claims the executor of a will or fiduciary of a trust has failed to fulfill their duties and must be replaced.
  • Determining or challenging heirship—when a party claims they have the right to an inheritance, even though they were not named in the will or by the court during probate.
