Where Tradition Meets the Future®

Trust & Estate Litigation Attorneys in Florida

Estate and trust litigation involves many issues, including family businesses, fiduciary duties, tax law, bankruptcy, real estate, and creditors’ rights. Estate and trust disputes often involve more than money — they include emotional issues that can divide families and interfere with a personal representative or trustee’s ability to administer the estate or trust.

The Estate & Trust Litigation team at Henderson Franklin finds creative solutions to help avoid protracted litigation, contain costs, and preserve family relationships. When proceedings turn adversarial, however, our attorneys combine their in-depth understanding of trust and estate law with our experience in litigation and work vigorously to protect and advance our client's interests to resolve disputes.
