Probate Litigation

Disputes between family members over the validity of a loved one's estate administration may need to be resolved in court.

When negotiations between parties in conflict are unproductive and probate litigation becomes a foregone conclusion, the respected San Diego law firm of Mazzarella & Mazzarella LLP defends client interests effectively and efficiently, in ways that consistently achieve positive results.

More than 30 years ago, as the chair of the trial department of California's second-oldest law firm — Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP — Mark Mazzarella created and ran the probate, trust and estate litigation sub group within the firm's trial department, having realized that special knowledge and skills were required for that type of litigation. At the time, most probate lawyers did not have the necessary trial experience and most trial lawyers didn't know the first thing about probate, trust and estate law.

From that tradition, Mazzarella & Mazzarella LLP has continued to provide trustees, beneficiaries, charities and other clients with proven trial knowledge and skills, and an understanding of the rights and responsibilities of everyone involved in making, administering, challenging or defending wills and trusts.
