Disputes over the distribution of estates and trusts can turn contentious because there is usually a great deal of money at stake. At Morrison, Ross and Whelan, the team of dedicated, skilled litigators can effectively represent either plaintiffs or defendants when the need for estate litigation is unavoidable.

Our Warrenton, Virginia, lawyers work quickly and aggressively to protect the legal rights and best interests of beneficiaries, trustees, executors and estate administrators in courts throughout Northern Virginia, including Fauquier, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William counties.

We Provide Effective Representation In High-Value Trust Litigation

Trusts are often created to shield high-value estates from probate and estate taxes. A trustee has a strict duty to operate a trust in the best interest of the beneficiaries and to adhere to the instructions left by the trust's creator.

When disputes arise between beneficiaries and trustees, however, no matter which side you are on, you need legal representation that has deep knowledge of these sophisticated, complex legal matters. Our attorneys do not just work on probate and trust litigation; we help individuals create thorough estate plans as well.

Our understanding of estate, probate and trust law, combined with our skills and experience in trials, mediation and arbitration, makes our lawyers well-suited to represent you in high-stakes probate litigation.
