Fiduciary Litigation

Our Approach

Osborne, Helman, Scott, Knisely & Stanton, LLP’s attorneys have experience in litigating a wide variety of disputes at the trial level in state and federal court. The firm’s litigation practice primarily involves the representation of fiduciaries and beneficiaries in estate, trust and guardianship controversies.

  • In the estate context, this includes representing personal representatives and beneficiaries in will contests, removal actions and general probate disputes.
  • In the trust context, this includes representing trustees and beneficiaries in any action brought by or against a trustee as well as pursuing trust modification or termination proceedings, removal actions and lawsuits to compel trust accountings.
  • The firm’s guardianship practice encompasses contested as well as uncontested guardianships proceedings.

Another significant part of the firm’s practice is the representation of charitable organizations in litigated matters involving estates, trusts or investigations by the Texas Attorney General.
