We provide expert witness services for disputes involving estate planning, probate, and breach of fiduciary duty, whether during a trust administration or estate administration, and disputes regarding attorney's fees in those contexts. Services can be rendered either as a consulting or testifying expert, and include the following:
Evaluation of claims
Consulting with trial counsel regarding substantive issues
Consulting with trial counsel regarding trial strategy
Services reflect extensive experience in both academic and practice contexts, thus bring a more comprehensive view to bear than that offered by those whose primary experience is in one context or another.

He brings a more comprehensive view to bear than that offered by those whose primary experience is in only one of those roles.
