Effective lawyers see the whole playing field.
Farr Law Group attorneys are well-versed in Washington’s Trust and Estates Dispute Resolution Act, or TEDRA. We have successfully represented personal representatives, trustees, estate beneficiaries and creditors in high stakes probates, will contests, undue influence and testamentary capacity challenges.
We will learn your facts, review your documents and offer an opinion about possible outcomes – and possible costs. We will help you see the playing field and develop an overall litigation strategy that is informed by our extensive experience as trial lawyers and estate lawyers. This includes analysis of settlement scenarios and risk, possibility of an early victory in motions practice, discovery and timing; expert witnesses, and admissibility of evidence—all designed to achieve maximum results for clients.
Litigation can be lengthy and expensive—If worth doing, it is worth doing well.
