Southern Maryland Estate & Trust Litigation
Litigation refers to a contest in court for the purpose of enforcing a right, and lawyers practice litigation in a number of different areas. Possessing strong skills as a litigator is essential, but equally important is knowledge of the law and practice in the particular field of litigation involved. Both of these strengths come primarily from experience. George Meng has experience in estate and trust litigation across all four courts that hear these types of cases in Maryland. No other lawyer in Southern Maryland has this particular level of experience. Aided by Sierra Mitchell and her broad and diverse litigation background, the team at Meng Law is the one to call on for estate, probate and trust litigation in Southern Maryland. Call Meng Law for help with any of the following in Calvert, St. Mary’s, Charles or Prince George’s County Orphans’ Court or other courts:
- Will contests – a challenge to the validity of the will
- Creditor actions – a lawsuit brought by a creditor of the estate for payment of a claim
- Theft allegations – accusations of improper handling or theft of estate funds
- Breach of fiduciary duty by the trustee – allegations of misappropriation or mishandling trust assets
