Fiduciary Litigation

Although most people have the best of intentions to plan their estates, all too often difficult issues arise following the death of a loved one. With broad knowledge in estate and trust matters, and our considerable experience in litigation, our attorneys are able to provide both technical and practical advice and counsel on issues involving:

  • Will contests
  • Will and trust interpretation disputes
  • Surcharge claims involving executors, trustees and guardians
  • Estate and gift tax challenges
  • Fiduciary compensation

Where necessary, we are prepared to initiate or defend litigation to protect the interests of our clients. We have appeared before or have been retained in estate and trust related matters before the courts in Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, Bucks and Berks Counties in Pennsylvania, and in Newcastle County, Delaware.

As an elected Fellow in the American College Of Trusts and Estates Counsel, Stephen Carroll has been recognized by his peers for his considerable experience and knowledge in these areas of the law. He has frequently lectured to judges and other attorneys in the areas of estates and trusts. As an indication of the respect and trust reposed in us by our peers, many of our cases are referred by other attorneys and we have, on numerous occasions, been retained by other attorneys or their families to represent their interests.

Our reputation and relationships with attorneys throughout Pennsylvania and Delaware enable us, where necessary, to work with or refer our clients to, other knowledgeable attorneys in distant jurisdictions in whom we can entrust their interests.
