We focus on family disputes arising at the end of life or after the death of a loved one. These disputes may involve money, love, power, control, blame, and other features of the emotional landscape of extended and blended families who are experiencing grief and loss. These disputes can be frustrating, infuriating, exasperating—and expensive to resolve. We can help.
Family members may want information about where assets went, how they were used, and what a parent wanted to give to whom. Sometimes we ask a court for help overseeing the management of a loved one’s trust or the distribution of assets after death. If there are questions about whether a loved one’s needs are being met or wishes honored, we raise those issues with the court. We guide and support clients through dispute resolution out of court. When agreement is not possible, we take the matter to trial before the court. We value closure on these complex issues and have experience at all stages of these proceedings.
We contact clients regularly by phone, email or letter. Many of our clients tell us that our website provides them with insight into how we might deal with their situation.
We are recognized by judges and attorneys throughout Minnesota for excellence in handling and resolving these disputes. We are able to put that experience to work for you. End-of-life family disputes are common and not always preventable; we help you manage them to minimize the impact and seek a lasting solution.
