Trusts & Estates Litigation

Our team provides legal counsel to clients when disputes arise during trust administration and probate. At times, an individual’s mental capacity may be called into question and as a result, the validity of their legal documents may be at issue. Another common concern is if a fiduciary, whether it be a trustee, executor, or power of attorney, is upholding their fiduciary duty as required by law and as specified within the specific estate planning document. We advise both fiduciaries and beneficiaries toward a positive outcome so the wishes of the deceased are followed and beneficiaries’ interests are preserved.

Business Litigation

Our team has extensive experience in all forms of business litigation. We represent both plaintiffs, those that may initiate suit, and defendants, those that are being brought in to defend their actions. We have in-depth experience in breach of contract matters and business-related torts such as matters related to restrictive covenants, non-compete and non-solicitation, and trade secret violations. We understand how stressful this litigation can be, not just emotionally, but financially on your small business.

Disputes & Litigation

Sometimes a dispute does not rise necessarily to the level of litigation, but a lawyer still needs to get involved. Maybe you have a contractor who has not provided the level of work that was expected on the timeline agreed to, a neighbor is proving to be a nuisance, funds that were owed have not been paid, or a business affiliate needs to have certain rights addressed. We have helped business partners unwind their entanglements while diffusing tensions. Our team is here to provide guidance, draft letters, and provide the skilled reasoning in helping to resolve your situation quickly. 

We can also help you if you are served with a subpoena but are not a party in a case. Maybe you have received the subpoena to sit for a deposition or maybe you are being asked to produce documents. These instances where you are not a party, but have a legal duty and obligation also require assistance, and we are here to help.

General Litigation

General civil litigation is a catch-all for any variety of issues that can arise and necessitate the need for a lawyer’s involvement. Our attorneys have a myriad of litigation experience, from business torts, contract disputes, real estate issues, and interpersonal concerns between non-romantic business partners. In general litigation, we can help you bring your case in General District Court, Circuit Courts in Virginia, or the Superior Court of Washington, D.C.

Contract Disputes

A contract dispute can happen to an individual or a business. Two sides enter into an agreement, and for an indefinite variety of facts, one side breaches or does not comply. It raises the question of what to do. Whether it is a contract with a contractor on your home renovation or your small business has run into problems with a vendor for nonperformance, GLG attorneys are available to help.

Trust Administration

Our team provides legal counsel to clients when disputes arise during trust administration and probate. At times, an individual’s mental capacity may be called into question and as a result, the validity of their legal documents may be at issue. Another common concern is if a fiduciary, whether it be a trustee, executor, or power of attorney, is upholding their fiduciary duty as required by law and as specified within the specific estate planning document. We advise both fiduciaries and beneficiaries toward a positive outcome so the wishes of the deceased are followed and beneficiaries’ interests are preserved.
