Our experienced civil litigation team handles cases in state and federal courts nationwide. We are known for our responsiveness, professionalism, preparedness, zealous advocacy and high ethical standards. Every law firm promotes a “value proposition.” At Momkus LLC, however, our deep-rooted successes have bred a sterling reputation of excellence and professionalism – as well as delivery. While we have done this with a unique formula of business experience and trial experience, providing value is simply good business; and this good business is a core value we uphold.
If you contact us for a consultation, you will meet with one of our civil litigation attorneys to discuss your unique issue. He or she will help identify your objectives and priorities in retaining legal counsel. We will present you with a plan of action for our representation and assess the strength of your case. We pride ourselves on the fact that we do not just apply the same rote strategy to every issue; we handle each matter in the manner required by its unique facts and circumstances. Together we will determine the appropriate strategy for your issue; investigation/analysis, traditional litigation, negotiation/ADR, or emergency litigation.
Trust and Estate Disputes
Wills and trusts are used by many estate holders to pass along financial and physical assets to the next generation. In the case of a will, it must go through the probate process. Assets in a trust can be passed through to beneficiaries (per the instructions of the trust) without the need for probate. Issues involving estates and trusts can become quite contentious when one (or more) of the beneficiaries believes they are being treated unfairly. When trust and estate disputes arise, it is important to have experienced legal counsel in your corner to guide you toward a positive resolution.
At Momkus LLC, we have extensive experience representing clients involved in trust and estate litigation. We represent corporate fiduciaries, individual trustees and executors as well as beneficiaries of a trust or estate. Our litigation group works closely with our probate and estate administration group to give our clients a comprehensive solution that fully addresses their needs and offers the most practical strategy to protect their interests. Our attorneys are responsive and compassionate with an unwavering commitment to effectively resolving your case.
