Our Estate Planning Practice
Mohrman, Kaardal & Erickson, P.A. has significant experience representing parties in disputes regarding trusts, estates, conservatorships and guardianship. Our attorneys have practiced in probate court in all of the metropolitan counties.
Generally, a guardianship or conservatorship dispute involves an elderly person who may lack capacity to make decisions or is being unduly influenced. Many disputes involve someone apparently taking advantage of the elderly person. Sometimes the cases involve a last will and testament or trust agreement being changed or a large “gift” being made.
Working To Protect The Rights Of Elderly Persons
In these cases, our firm works with health care professionals to determine what is in the best interest of the elderly person. Once the need for a conservatorship or guardianship is established, we represent the interested person in the process of filing the petition in district court. We also represent elderly persons when conservatorships or guardianships are sought who do not believe they need these protections, and have worked to protect the rights of wards in disputes with guardians and conservators.
Estate Planning Transactions
Our attorneys also practice extensively in the area of trusts and estates. We draft estate planning documents, trust documents, and related transfer documents. We also litigate controversies over trusts and estates.
Finding The Best Way Forward
We have experience, as well, in counseling trust administrators, personal representatives, executors, and other fiduciaries on complex matters. Our goal is always to make the process run smoothly for the benefit of the involved parties. Avoiding disputes, or at least resolving them quickly and correctly, is the best most cost-effective way forward. To contact our estate planning lawyers, call us at 612-465-0937 or contact us online.
