Our Practice Areas

TRUST LITIGATION

We represent trustees, beneficiaries, and heirs in disputed estate and trust litigation. Our attorneys have tried, litigated, mediated, and settled cases involving every type of trust dispute.

ELDER ABUSE

Barr & Young has always been on the cutting-edge of elder abuse litigation. Elder abuse is the financial or physical abuse of a person over the age of sixty-five.

WILL CONTESTS

Over the last 20 years, we have successfully argued both sides of will contest cases. A will or trust “contest” is a legal action where one party attempts to invalidate a will or trust while the other party seeks to defend the validity of the document.

CONSERVATORSHIPS

Our lawyers have extensive experience with conservatorships – a court proceeding designed to protect elders or dependent adults who may be unable to care for themselves or resist fraud or undue influence.

TRUST ADMINISTRATION

Upon the decedent’s death, we oversee the transfer of the decedent’s assets to the beneficiaries.

SECURITIES LITIGATION

Gordon Young leads our securities litigation practice. For more than 20 years, Gordon has favorably litigated and tried cases in state and federal courts.
