Probate, Trust, And Estate Disputes

In Washington, we have one of the best tools at our disposal for resolving disputes regarding a probate, trust, or estate in general. The Trust and Estate Dispute Resolution Act (“TEDRA”) was passed to allow for flexible and equitable solutions to these problems.

TEDRA Litigation Expertise: Our law firm specializes in TEDRA litigation, providing comprehensive legal representation to clients involved in complex trust and estate disputes at every level. Whether you’re facing challenges related to the interpretation of a trust document, disagreements among beneficiaries, or allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, our experienced attorneys are here to advocate for your interests. With a deep understanding of Washington’s TEDRA statutes and case law, we navigate the intricacies of TEDRA litigation with skill and precision, working diligently to achieve favorable outcomes for our clients. Our team of attorneys have vast experience in this area of the law, having litigated and settled numerous cases – in Superior Court, the Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of the State of Washington – sometimes recovering substantial costs and attorneys’ fees from the “bad actors” in the dispute, saving the estate and unsuspecting beneficiaries of the same from paying the price of the bad acts of another.

In many TEDRA cases, litigation can be costly, time-consuming, and emotionally draining for all parties involved. That’s why our firm emphasizes the use of mediation and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods to resolve trust and estate disputes efficiently and amicably whenever possible. Our attorneys are trained mediators and skilled negotiators, capable of facilitating productive discussions and guiding parties toward mutually beneficial solutions outside of the courtroom. By harnessing the power of mediation and ADR, we help our clients avoid protracted litigation, preserve family relationships, and achieve resolutions that meet their needs and objectives.

Trust and estate disputes often involve high stakes and complex family dynamics, requiring a delicate balance of legal expertise and compassionate advocacy. At our firm, we ultimately approach TEDRA litigation and settlement negotiations with a commitment to understanding our clients’ goals and concerns, while also providing strategic legal guidance to protect their rights and interests. Whether we’re representing individual beneficiaries, trustees, or executors, we prioritize clear communication, thorough preparation, and zealous advocacy to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients. With our trusted legal counsel by your side, you can navigate TEDRA litigation with confidence and clarity.
