*the result is greater than the sum of its parts*

A sole practitioner or small law office that specializes in estate planning or trust law may not always be able or willing to handle the variety of issues that may arise for a particular client. Matters involving complex estate plans, trust and probate administration or litigation, conservatorship and guardianship administration, family owned businesses and real property can all arise very quickly but not all offices are ready to handle such variety.

The Hawaii Estate Law Group, a network of independent law offices, was formed to collectively, through its members, cover a wide array of trust and related practice areas. When working with any member of the Group, clients can rest easy knowing that, should a problem beyond the norm arise, reinforcements are a quick phone call away.

Trust Litigation

Trust and estate litigation is distinguished from other types of litigation because probate and trust laws and rules are rooted in common law principles of equity. Efficient and effective representation demands knowledge and expertise in the applicable laws and procedural rules related to probate and trust litigation. Corporate and individual trustees, personal representatives, administrators, conservators, beneficiaries and other parties may all become involved all in trust and estate disputes, that may include:

  • Intra-family conflicts
  • Challenges to the validity or construction of a will, trust, or other estate
  • planning document
  • Disputes concerning property rights
  • Creditors’ claims
  • Trust or estate accounting issues
  • Allegations of a breach of fiduciary duty
  • Allegations of fraud, coercion and undue influence

The Hawaii Estate Law Group offers high level legal representation together with the individualized attention, responsiveness and value that only a network of independent law offices can provide. For further information, please contact us.
