Trust & Probate Litigation

Trust & Probate Litigation Overview

An attorney from Hughes & Pizzuto can be seen in one of San Diego’s probate courts almost every day.  We have been litigating cases arising under the Probate Code – cases involving trusts, wills, fiduciaries, conservatorships and guardianships – and only these cases — for years.  We have an experienced team to guide our clients through the many emotional and technical issues inherent in this complex and specialized field of law.

We handle all types of trust and probate matters.  We work on cases involving will and trust contests, allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, ambiguous documents, complicated trust accountings, lost trust investments, and taxes.  We can assist family members who have disputes over the care to be provided for aging loved ones, and arrange guardianships for minor children.

In every case, we do our best to focus our team of experienced professionals on the best interests of our clients.  Our clients’ successes are our successes.
