With a well-designed estate plan, it is possible to avoid disputes among surviving loved ones, beneficiaries, and fiduciaries. Unfortunately, when disagreements do arise, it often involves pitting relatives and loved ones against each other. The attorneys at Max Alavi APC only focus on one area of law: Probate, Trusts, and Estates.

Our firm is a leader in trust litigation in California, and we have ample experience navigating the probate courts in Santa Ana, Newport Beach, Long Beach, Laguna Hills, and beyond.
  • Intimidation, Duress, or Elder Abuse: If the testator changed his or her will under the threat of force, intimidation, abuse, or duress.
  • Undue Influence: If someone close to the deceased person, such as a caregiver, family member, or friend, unfairly used a position of trust, it is said that said person had an undue influence on the deceased.
  • Mental Capacity: If the testator is shown to have been in an impaired mental state at the time the will was executed.
  • Defects in Will: A will may be contested if it was signed in the absence of witnesses, was not signed by the testator, or is otherwise not executed according to the law.
  • Revocation: If the will was revoked after it was executed, it can also be considered void.
  • Misrepresentation or Fraud: If the testator was deliberately misled by a thirdparty.
If you believe that a will maybe invalid for one or more of the above reasons, or you have been accused of one of the above claims, you need an experienced trust litigation law firm on your side. Contact our friendly staff at Max Alavi APC today.

Even the most meticulously detailed trust can cause a dispute. Hurt feelings, distrust, and frustration among families, can lead to trust litigation. When this happens, an experienced trust litigation attorney can make all the difference. Trust litigation generally falls into one of two categories, challenges to the validity of a trust and challenges to the administration of a trust.

  • Challenged to Trust Validity: Challenges to the validity of a trust often involve allegations of incapacity, undue influence, duress, or elder abuse. Additionally, if a trust was drafted without the aid of an attorney, or with an attorney lacking experience, the terms may be open to interpretation. In such cases, a trust dispute may arise where the court is asked to interpret an ambiguous term.This is where the guidance of trust litigation lawyers is essential.
  • Challenging Trust Administration : Unlike in Probate Court, Trust Administration is typically accomplished without court oversight. Trust disputes arise when aggrieved beneficiaries, creditors, and taxing authorities challenge the administration of the trust, attempt to replace the trustee, or hold the trustee personally liable for mismanagement or malfeasance.
