Ruttenberg Cutler has extensive experience representing clients in trust and estate litigation.
Even the most thoroughly written will or trust can be the subject of disagreements over a range of issues. Our firm represents beneficiaries and trustees in contested will or trust matters. We also represent beneficiaries seeking to recover assets they believe were wrongfully taken before or after a decedent’s death.
Another area of dispute is in connection with compelling fiduciaries to render an accounting of estate/trust assets if there are signs of irregularities or misappropriation of funds.
The firm also prosecutes elder abuse actions and has successfully obtained temporary restraining orders in cases of physical, financial and emotional abuse.
