DuPage County Attorneys for Will, Estate, and Trust Litigation
Skilled Litigation Lawyers Located in Wheaton, Illinois
Most attorneys who concentrate some or all of their practice in the will, estate, and trust fields have not developed a parallel concentration in the fields of litigation and dispute resolution. Over the years, Schmidt & Barbrow, PC has been able to help these attorneys serve their clients when litigation efforts are required.
Litigation Experience Where it Counts
With over 60 years of combined experience, Schmidt & Barbrow, PC concentrates a significant portion of its practice in the litigation and resolution of trust, will, estate and probate disputes. The firm's approach begins with an analysis of the documents or plan presented, and a consideration of the dispute's particulars.
Armed with this information, Schmidt & Barbrow, PC begins the process of evaluating the data in light of the statutes, Supreme, and appellate court cases, and rules that will control the handling of the dispute and its outcome. Schmidt & Barbrow, PC's attorneys also analyze the court and the jurist to whom the matter has been or will be assigned to the case.
Such evaluations form the basis for a dispute resolution plan which guides the actions of client and counsel as the matter moves forward. This analysis is flexible, and may well change as additional facts are developed. However, it provides a solid basis on which to address the critical issues of the dispute and to determine what will be necessary to best resolve the matter.
Resolving Your Litigation Matters Since 1994
Resolution options include trial, arbitration, mediation, and/or settlement. Considerations of cost are made part of this analysis, including an analysis of whether or not wide ranging discovery, specific document requests, or no discovery at all is warranted given the nature of the dispute, the jurists and litigants involved, and the amount at stake. In many instances, we have enjoyed acting as co-counsel with referring counsel who wish to involve Schmidt & Barbrow, PC in a case.
