Our trust and estate attorney team handles complex and cutting-edge cases involving questions of fiduciary responsibilities and the administration of trusts and estates, often defending trustees and other fiduciaries as well as advocating for the rights of beneficiaries.
Duffy & Sweeney litigators understand the sensitivities inherent in fiduciary and trust cases, including the intricacies of dealing with differently aligned parties and the family dynamics that often arise.
While our trust and estate attorney team approaches litigation aggressively, we often effectively negotiate successful resolutions outside the courtroom without compromising clients’ goals.
“Bob Duffy and his team are the premier trusts and estates litigators in Rhode Island. As an estate planning, and trust and estate administration attorney, the first place I turn for trust and estate litigation is Duffy & Sweeney.”
