The population and significant wealth accumulation of the “Baby Boom” generation have led to increased disputes when it comes time to pass that wealth to the next generation. Many of these disputes can be resolved without expensive, complex litigation, but some require aggressive and experienced trial counsel willing to file suit and proceed to trial. Knowing when to settle your estate dispute and when litigation is your best option is vital to your success. At Milligan Pusateri Co., LPA, we have the experience to know the difference and will work hard to find the right solution for your probate or trust problem.

Practice Area Attorneys
Milligan Pusateri has five attorneys in our probate and trust litigation practice group, representing decades of experience in successfully handling complex estate disputes. Whatever your dispute may entail, we are confident that our team can help you find a successful resolution.

Time Is of the Essence

Our probate and trust litigation practice team is large enough to handle high-stakes estate disputes yet small enough to stay nimble. We can quickly identify the issues and your options and then spring into action to protect your rights.
