Trust and Estate Litigation

When a family member dies, the resulting legal and financial concerns can be stressful, time-consuming and, all too often, contentious. With a sound estate plan in place, it is often possible to avoid trust and estate disputes. However, if you find yourself engaged in such a dispute, it is important to have an experienced legal team protecting your interests.

Sessions’ Estate Planning and Probate Group has extensive experience handling trust and estate disputes for clients in New Orleans and throughout surrounding parishes. Our skilled trial lawyers have in-depth knowledge of procedural and substantive issues involved in litigating Louisiana successions, and probate and trust matters, making us formidable advocates for clients engaged in estate and trust litigation.

Handling Family Disputes with Care

Although our trust and estate litigation attorneys understand the sensitivity involved in family disputes, and seek to resolve legal disputes without causing undue strife or acrimony among family members, we will provide you with strong, unwavering representation in trust and estate disputes involving claims of:

  • Undue influence;
  • Incapacity;
  • Breach of fiduciary duty; and
  • Executor/Administrator fraud or incompetence.

Litigation among family members can be heart-wrenching. We make every attempt to help our clients avoid such litigation by guiding them to amicable resolutions whenever possible. We also help clients avoid litigation by establishing firm estate plans that limit the possibility of trust and estate disputes. Nevertheless, when disputes arise and litigation is unavoidable, we are here to protect your interests with strong, unrelenting representation.
