Contested Estate and Trust Litigation

Contested Estate and Trust Litigation

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is difficult for anyone to go through, but when disputes arise among heirs to an estate or beneficiaries of a trust, the experience is that much harder. With more than a decade of complex litigation experience, Hess Law Firm will guide you through the litigation process and aggressively ensure that your interests are pursued and protected.

Hess Law Firm concentrates its litigation practice in the area of contested estate and trust litigation, representing both fiduciaries (that is, executors named in a will or trustees of a trust) as well as heirs and beneficiaries.

We litigate all types of estate and trust disputes, including will contests, claims for breach of fiduciary duty, undue influence, intentional interference with an inheritance or expectancy, lack of capacity, claims against an estate and disputes over the administration of a trust.  Our experience and diligence provide clients with the resources and peace of mind to make good decisions on resolution options, whether that be settlement, mediation or a trial before a judge or jury.

If you believe you are being wrongfully omitted from a loved one’s will or have questions about the way in which an estate is being administered in Illinois, or if you have questions about how to go about administering the estate of a loved one who has died in Illinois, contact Matthew Hess today at to learn the ways in which Mr. Hess can help you.
