Is your family involved in a trust dispute?

A family trust is put in place to protect a family's assets and pass along these resources to future generations. But, occasionally these trusts run into family disputes in Minnesota. Trust disputes can be stressful for families and can lead to families suffering long-term consequences.

A trust dispute usually involves questions about a person's inheritance. A person may feel like the trust was the result of undue influence or may have had a lack of capacity. Or there may be a dispute among the beneficiaries such as whether a second wife and second family take precedence over the family from a first marriage. Or do children take preference over grandchildren? Are children who are in a family business being treated differently from those who are not? All of these are valid questions that can result in heated family disputes.

We have decades of experience helping our clients through informal discussions, mediation, arbitration and court.
