Compassionate Planning And Administration Services Tailored To Your Needs

Strong Advocates In Estate Litigation

At Vella, Carbone & Associates, LLP, we understand that trust and estate matters are highly personal. We know that losing a loved one can be difficult and complicated. You deserve experienced legal guidance during this difficult time – especially when it becomes necessary to defend the adherence to your loved one’s final wishes and intentions.

Why You Need A Law Firm With Estate Litigation Experience

Many law firms involved in trust and estate litigation are either fundamentally estate planners or civil litigators. Independently, neither of these specialties makes an attorney prepared to handle a contested estate matter before the New York Surrogate’s Courts. Estate litigation is a unique and nuanced area that involves many layers of complexity.

At Vella, Carbone & Associates, LLP, we have decades of experience in trust and estate law as well as probate proceedings and estate litigation, giving our clients the edge they need when litigation becomes necessary. Our experience spans even the most complex estate and trust matters.

You can turn to us for guidance on issues such as:

  • Contested wills: Whether we are defending the legitimacy of a will or objecting to the will’s probate, we will provide the utmost level of service and commitment to zealous representation.
  • Disputes over estate accountingsWe can provide clarity and advocacy on issues surrounding accountings for trusts or estates.
  • Trust disputes: Whether the dispute involves the interpretation, management or validity of a trust, we can help. Our lawyers understand the nuances of trust law in New York.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty: Many contested estate issues result in disputes over the competence of a fiduciary (that is, an executor or trustee). Our lawyers have experience representing parties on both sides of these claims.

Our attorneys understand the emotional toll that estate disputes can take on survivors, and we counsel our clients through every step of the process.
