Going to Court? Our Estate Litigation Attorneys Can Help

Trust & Estate Litigation - A Prepared & Confident Team to Ensure Your Family's Assets are Protected


Smith Strong, PLC opened its Trust and Estate Litigation practice area as a natural progression from the trust and confidence in our approach with family law disputes from past clients and referring attorneys, financial advisors and financial institutions.


That trust is critical as estate litigation often involves situations where trust has deteriorated between family members over the handling of fiduciary obligations.


Our firm, led by attorney Van Smith, routinely assists clients in the following matters:


  • Will & Trust Interpretation
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duties--For and Against Fiduciaries
  • Prudent Investor Rule, and Its Application on Asset Management
  • Disputed Claims For and Against Estates & Trusts
  • Lack of Mental Capacity
  • Fraud, Duress, and Undue Influence on Testators (those signing Wills and Trusts improperly)
  • Spousal Rights and Payments of Proceeds from Trust
  • Determination of Beneficiaries
  • Recovery of Assets


If you have suddenly discovered that a person you trusted to manage the financial affairs or wellbeing of a loved one is now mishandling assets, we need to meet, quickly.


Call and ask one of attorney Van Smith's assistants at 804.325.1245 or 757.941.4298 to set up an appointment in order to see if you can work directly with Van and his team of attorneys and paralegals to resolve this upsetting situation.
