Facing An Estate Or Trust Dispute? Our Experienced Trial Attorneys Can Help.

Many law firms that represent clients during estate and trust disputes delegate these cases to estate planning lawyers, who have little actual trial experience. At Engelmeier & Umanah, P.A., we have seasoned and accomplished trial attorneys on our estate and probate law team. These professionals have years of experience in probate courts, and they have in-depth knowledge of relevant laws and procedures.

We offer skillful representation to clients in Minneapolis and outstate Minnesota who face a variety of legal problems during the trust or estate administration process, including:

  • Will contests
  • Trust petitions
  • Tax disputes
  • Various forms of fiduciary claims litigation

The E&U professionals know how to fight to protect our clients, whether they are personal or corporate fiduciaries, beneficiaries, personal representatives or third parties.

We are also very sensitive to the fact that probate and trust disputes tend to involve much more than money. These legal issues are often rooted in challenging family dynamics. Mishandling a dispute can have a significant emotional and financial cost.

We are committed to finding creative solutions to help our clients solve estate and trust disputes while preserving family relationships as much as possible. Depending on the specifics of your case, this may involve alternative dispute resolution services like negotiation or mediation. Should litigation become necessary, we are prepared to work vigorously to protect your interests in court.

If you are facing estate or probate litigation of any form, as your law firm we will strive to resolve the dispute in a way that protects your personal, family, business, financial and tax priorities.
