Evans, Latham & Campisi is a leading trust and estate litigation firm in Northern California. It was founded in 1980 by Thomas Latham and Dominic Campisi, each of ELC’s nine attorneys adds his or her own unique resources, creativity, and skills to a firm that prides itself on strong, reliable, and productive representation of clients seeking the successful resolution of the probate and trust disputes they face.
Because all of the lawyers at ELC focus in the same practice area, there are very few types of probate and trust disputes that our firm does not encounter regularly. We have litigated dozens of will contests and trust contests, claims of fiduciary mismanagement and breach of trust and fiduciary duty, questions of intestate succession, community property claims, probate and trust accountings, and the many other issues that can arise upon a person’s death and the distribution of his or her assets.
We represent individuals, corporations, and other business organizations, including non-profits. Because we both prosecute and defend claims and represent both beneficiaries and fiduciaries, our attorneys regularly view disputes from a variety of perspectives, which works to the benefit of our clients. The collective experience of the attorneys in ELC allows us to provide cost-effective representation to our clients yet remain sensitive to the many factors that make each person’s case unique.
