Berkeley Estate Litigation Lawyer

Many types of disputes can arise over a will, a trust or the probate process. A family member or caregiver may unduly influence the drafting of a will. A trust beneficiary may think that a trust is being mismanaged or complain of insufficient payout of trust funds. A life beneficiary can consume an asset too fast. Whatever the nature of the dispute, it must be resolved because the financial stakes are high.

An Alternative to Estate Litigation

A lawsuit typically is not the best way to resolve will contest or a dispute over a trust or the probate process. Mediation can sometimes resolve an estate dispute in a more satisfactory manner — and at a lower cost. Mediated solutions can also preserve family relationships that lengthy and contentious litigation may destroy.

Attorney David Welty has long used mediation to resolve civil disputes. He can explain the mediation process and discuss the applicability of mediation in your case. If mediation is right for you, he can provide advice during mediation or serve as a neutral mediator.
