We understand that losing a loved one is an incredibly difficult experience, and facing legal challenges during this time only adds to the stress. Disputes among family members or close relations over an estate or trust can escalate the grieving process from difficult to overwhelming. At Buckley Fine, while we strive to help clients avoid these issues through quality estate planning, we recognize that sometimes disputes are unavoidable. If you are facing a situation where a trust or estate is being contested, or if you find yourself needing to contest a loved one’s trust or estate, our experienced attorneys are here to help resolve these disputes quickly, painlessly, and amicably.
Our approach isn’t just about litigation. We aim to resolve these issues through mediation, negotiation, and settlement before they reach a courtroom. However, if court proceedings become necessary, we are fully prepared to defend your rights and interests.
It’s important to remember that family and friends are not the only ones who might contest a trust or estate. Our Barrington-area lawyers are also well-versed in handling IRS contests. If your estate is challenged due to tax liability, we can assist in protecting your assets while ensuring full compliance with federal and state tax laws.
Whether you’re involved in a dispute as a trustee or a beneficiary, or if you need assistance in any other aspect of contested estate or trust litigation, the attorneys at Buckley Fine are here to offer the legal expertise and support you need. We’re committed to achieving the best possible outcome for you, with a focus on preserving relationships and reaching fair resolutions.
