Resolutions Through Trust and Estate Litigation
Under certain circumstances after a trust has been created, it may be necessary for the probate court to be involved in a number of issues that may arise in relation to that trust. Similarly, circumstances may arise in the administration of an estate where litigation is required to resolve disputes involving a will.
At Aanestad Law, we are dedicated to serving the legal needs of both trustees and beneficiaries who may require representation as the result of an issue arising from a trust. It may involve the inaction, breach of fiduciary duty of a trustee, or issues related to the circumstances surrounding the establishment of the trust.

Resolutions Through Trust and Estate Mediation
As an alternative to litigation, Aanestad Law can help you pursue a favorable resolution to trust and estate disputes outside of the courtroom—though mediation.
The trust and estate experts at Aanestad Law can help clients avoid the financial and emotional strain of public courtroom proceedings.
Mediation allows parties in dispute the opportunity to reach mutually acceptable agreements on their own terms.
This form of alternative dispute resolution is generally much less expensive than litigation and allows for financial aspects of the matter to be settled privately while allowing parties the opportunity for emotional healing.
