Our attorneys hope to become trusted advisers for our clients. The attorneys of The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm can help you plan for a time when your guidance will not be available to your family. Planning for such events can be difficult, but your loved ones deserve it and will appreciate it. Our attorneys start from scratch or will review an existing estate plan to see if it meets your needs, or to update it if you so desire.

  • Will contests because of undue influence
  • Will "construction suits" because of an ambiguity in an estate planning document
  • Trust litigation and trust modification
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
