Our Probate Litigation Services


Probate disputes can involve disagreements or allegations of wrongdoing related to the management and care of incapacitated family members.

Our conservatorship attorneys can assist in resolving disputes over the appointment, modification, termination, or alleged mismanagement of a conservatorship that may arise throughout the probate process.


The question of who should look after a minor following the passing of their legal guardian can be difficult to answer.

Our guardianship lawyers can help resolve appointment or custody disputes and navigate the Tennessee court processes for selecting and appointing a guardian to ensure that the child in question has somebody reliable and trustworthy to oversee their affairs.

Trust Disputes

Does a recently deceased loved one’s trust seem unfair? Do you have reasons to question its validity? Our trust litigation attorneys can help resolve disputes over the validity of a trust.

We’ll help you determine whether or not you have cause and legal standing to file a claim and guide you through the best course of action to resolve the dispute.

Will Contests

If your loved one was not of sound mind when putting together their will, was coerced or under duress, or did not know or approve of all elements of the will, you could have cause to contest its validity.

Our probate litigation lawyers can help you determine whether you can contest the will and lead you through the contesting process to minimize stress.

Undue Influence

There are times when a loved one may need assistance in planning their estate, but the assistance they receive may not always have their best interests at heart.

If you suspect a relative, caretaker, or attorney of having exerted undue influence in the writing of a will, our undue influence attorneys can help you prove your case and contest the will.

Breach of Fiduciary Duty

A person or entity selected as the executor, trustee, or representative of a loved one’s estate has a legal responsibility to fulfill their wishes. If the fiduciary acts contrary to that duty—for example, acting in their own self-interest instead of the beneficiaries, misappropriation of assets, or failing to comply with laws and regulations—our probate litigation attorneys can help you take legal action to remove them.
