Legal Services We Provide
Hiring a trust litigation lawyer is an important decision. At Barr & Young, our trust litigators treat our clients’ matters as if they were our own. Throughout a trust dispute, a trust contest attorney will provide experience-based legal advice and advocate effectively to protect your interests.
Elder abuse is the physical abuse, neglect, isolation, or financial abuse of a person over age sixty-five. Barr & Young represents victims of elder abuse and defends clients wrongfully accused of elder abuse.
Estate planning is a central component of a responsible financial plan, and the need to hire an estate planning lawyer increases as one has children and gets older.
We guide trustees and executors through the trust administration or probate process, by which assets owned by a decedent are transferred to the beneficiaries.
A will or trust “contest” is when one party attempts to invalidate a will or trust, while the other party defend the validity of the document. Most contests are brought on the grounds of incapacity, undue influence, or fraud.
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 to resist fraud or undue influence.
