Litigation of estates, guardianships and trusts in Texas is specialized.  At Berlinger Davis & Lyssy, we are up to the challenge and bring 40 years combined experience litigating these matters in Texas. 
We understand the family dynamics that come with the litigation that unfortunately often arise with blended families and between siblings over a loved one’s assets.  Despite solid estate planning, sometimes even the best planning cannot predict what will happen after the incapacity or death of a loved one.  When disputes arise, we are experienced and equipped to handle any size estate, trust or guardianship matter. 
Oftentimes, with our decades’ of experience in fiduciary litigation we evaluate a case early and encourage family settlements that promote preservation of the family estate.  We also recognize that some disputes cannot be resolved without strategic and aggressive litigation.  We handle the following matters:
  • Will contests;
  • Will interpretations;
  • Actions against executors, guardians and trustees;
  • Trust modifications;
  • Actions against agents under a power of attorney;
  • Fraudulent changes to beneficiaries of bank accounts, retirement benefits, and life insurance policies;
  • Common law spouses; and
  • Children adopted informally.
