Probate And Estate Litigation Attorneys

After the passing of a loved one, the last thing anyone wants is to become embroiled in a contentious lawsuit over a will or trust. Unfortunately, disputes do occur.

At the Florida law firm of Frese, Whitehead, Anderson, Anderson & Heuston, P.A., we are here to take the stress off your shoulders. Our lawyers will diligently defend your legal interests so that you can take care of more important matters, such as caring for yourself and your family during this difficult emotional time.

While wills are governed by the local court system, trusts are administered privately. Our estate law attorneys have experience representing numerous clients both within the court system and outside of it. We have been serving individuals and families in Melbourne and the surrounding areas since 1989, and we have earned the respect of the community.

Contesting A Will

Most disputes over wills involve accusations of undue influence (someone else coerced or threatened the person into writing the will a certain way) or lack of testamentary capacity (the person did not really know what he or she was doing). Our law firm is skilled in uncovering the truth and helping families resolve these kinds of will contests.

Resolving A Trust Dispute

At Frese, Whitehead, Anderson, Anderson & Heuston, P.A., we represent beneficiaries of trusts who find themselves at the mercy of uncooperative trustees. Perhaps the trustee is failing to provide appropriate financial accountings, or perhaps he or she has even misappropriated assets. If so, we can help.

We also advise trustees on how to efficiently fulfill their legal duties, successfully administer the trust and avoid being sued for breach of fiduciary duty or any other negligence.
