Estate and Trust Litigation

CVDL has trial lawyers who possess in-depth knowledge of the substantive law and unique procedures applicable to Missouri probate and trust disputes.

We also bring to the table our common sense approach towards handling sometimes difficult family matters, which frequently can be fairly resolved through consensus building and improved communication.

When those common sense techniques fail, we are adept at handling matters in the court system, helping our clients achieve the best possible result in light of the circumstances they face. Some of the issues we typically handle include:

  • Disputes between heirs
  • Will contests
  • Interpretation of trusts
  • Undue influence
  • Lack of mental capacity
  • Fraud
  • Conservatorships
