Inheritance Disputes

Carol W. Wood’s experience in estate and trust litigation enables her to assist clients in settling disputes regarding inheritance. She finds that many such disputes result from a lack of communication or misunderstandings about how the process works. She advocates for beneficiaries who may have been left in the dark and defends fiduciaries under attack for their actions. Every effort is made to resolve disputes short of litigation. If litigation is necessary, after consultation with the client, Carol will associate a skilled litigation attorney to handle that aspect of the case.
