We are a team. In moments of high pressure or high intensity, we have the resources needed to effectively power your case. Our team has a very deep background in handling private wealth disputes.

Reminger’s Estates, Trusts, and Probate Litigation Practice Group understands the complex emotional issues surrounding contested estates, having represented clients on both sides of these controversies for decades. We pride ourselves on our ability to analyze, evaluate, and solve complex substantive problems on behalf of fiduciaries, beneficiaries, and third-party claimants in contested matters. 

Our overarching goal is to help parties come to an amicable resolution; however, if one cannot be achieved, we are prepared and have extensive experience in the trial and appellate arenas.

Private Wealth Dispute Attorneys

Our estate dispute attorneys prosecute and defend cases before mediators, arbitrators, magistrates, judges, and juries throughout Ohio. Private wealth disputes can be emotionally charged and complex, often involving intricate legal and financial considerations.  We handle a variety of issues surrounding private wealth litigation, including: 

  • Will contests, including the prosecution and defense of validity of wills
  • Trust contests
  • Disputes over the meaning of words and clauses as written in Trusts, Wills and other donative instruments, otherwise known as Construction cases.
  • Concealment of asset actions
  • Representation of fiduciaries and beneficiaries in matters of mismanagement of assets and breach of trust
  • Removal or replacement of executors, trustees, or guardians 
  • Contested Guardianship matters including disputes over incompetence determinations, choice of guardian, and removal of guardianship.
  • Investigation of power of attorney abuse and related claims
  • Invalidation of documents due to claims of undue influence, elder exploitation, lack of capacity and incompetence
  • Representation of parties in farm inheritance disputes 

Reminger attorneys have held lead roles in decades of appellate decisions affecting and impacting the estate and trust law throughout Ohio. It is not unusual for many of our cases to be cited as precedent in decisions rendered on subsequent cases in which we have been involved. Some of those landmark cases are often cited throughout the courts of Ohio and cover such matters as removal of fiduciaries, construction of donative instruments, probate court jurisdiction, land usage, attorney disqualification, intentional interference with an expectancy of inheritance, legal malpractice/standard of care issues, and fiduciary accountings. 

We can and do consider contingency and fixed fee compensation arrangements as well as traditional hourly rate fee structures.
