Estate Litigation

Vella Carbone understands that trust and estate matters are very personal and that losing a loved one can be difficult and complicated.  When it becomes necessary to defend the adherence to your loved one’s final wishes and intentions further complicates this difficult time. The attorneys of Vella Carbone understand the emotional toll that disputes can cause survivors and we counsel our clients through every step of the process.

Many law firms involved in trust and estate litigation are either fundamentally estate planners or litigators.  Independently, neither of these specialties makes an attorney prepared to handle a contested estate matter before the New York Surrogate’s Courts. At Vella Carbone, we have the experience and expertise in trust and estate law as well as litigation giving our clients the edge they need when estate litigation becomes necessary, even in the most complex estate and trust matters.

We have represented clients in Will contests on both sides of the issue.  Whether we are defending the legitimacy of a Will or objecting to the Will’s probate our clients are given the utmost service and commitment to zealous representation.  However, trust and estate litigation takes many forms from discovery and turn over proceedings to objecting to a fiduciary’s competence.  Vella Carbone are equipped to handle all the issues that can be presented in estate disputes.
