Estate planning is intended to protect assets, preserve property and investments, and map out the eventual distribution of your holdings, as well as providing instructions for the care, guardianship and education of minor children.

Unfortunately, a well thought out and carefully prepared estate plan, trust or will is not always a rock solid guarantee that your wishes will be carried out as specified. Complications frequently arise for a host of reasons. There may be a simple misunderstanding or a clerical error. In some cases, an heir may feel he has been unfairly left out of a will, or a family may suspect a close friend or caregiver has fraudulently maneuvered to be named as a beneficiary or questions may arise with regard to an executor’s or trustee’s fiduciary responsibility.
