Sharon routinely assists individuals when the unforeseen happens and a dispute arises over a will or trust. This could entail anything from how to interpret a will, whether a will is legally valid, whether a will failed to provide for someone who has a legal entitlement to the estate proceeds, how to manage a trust according to the terms of the trust document, or whether a trust was properly created. Sharon also has experience in assisting to resolve trustee disputes, passing trustee and executor accounts, bringing guardianship applications, and requesting capacity assessments. If it is not possible to negotiate a settlement, and litigation is unavoidable, Sharon will work with you to assess the pros and cons of pursing litigation and will provide a candid assessment of your position.
Should your matter proceed to mediation and/or court, Sharon will be with you every step of the way.
