Mediation Main

Mediation Overview

Our mediators have extensive experience as litigation counsel and mediators in trust, probate, conservatorships, and real property conflicts.

At Hughes & Pizzuto our focus is fairness and compassion. We offer a tailored approach to mediation depending on the circumstances, including both a facilitative and evaluative approach.

Examples of contested matters handled by our mediators include: trust and will contests, beneficiary disputes, contested petitioners to establish conservatorship or guardianship, creditors’ claims litigation, estate and gift tax controversies, fiduciary appointment or removal, fiduciary and attorneys’ fees, contested accountings, and characterization, ownership distribution, and valuation of tangible personal property and real property.
