The trial attorneys at Black & Skaggs have experience representing the interests of their clients inside and outside the courtroom.

We will keep you fully informed and engaged in your case from start to finish.
Trust litigation usually stems from two places: 1) challenges to the validity of the trust, and 2) requests to alter the trust.Like will contests, trust challenges can stem from allegations of undue influence, fraud, incapacity, and/or duress.However, up-dealing by a trustee is also grounds to challenge a trust. In such cases, the trust beneficiaries may seek an accounting or maneuver to modify the trust.
Contact the experienced trial lawyers at Black & Skaggs for help resolving challenges to numerous types of trusts, such as Qualified terminal interest property trusts (QTIP), living trusts, testamentary trusts, and generational skipping trusts (GST).
