Estate and Trust Litigation

June 28, 2018

In 2018 Cory Genelin obtained an exceptional settlement on behalf of heirs of a $1.5M estate. The decedent had executed a will in favor of two strangers.  The heirs contested the will on the basis of undue influence and lack of capacity.  Cory and his team conducted an in-depth fact investigation raising serious doubts about the will and forcing the will proponents to concede

In 2016 Cory Genelin defended the administration of two farm trusts valued at $5.2M. This followed previous litigation in 2014. In that litigation, Mr. Genelin had the court appoint a new trustee favorable to his client, the lifetime beneficiary of the trusts. After two years of favorable administration, a death beneficiary of the trust (who was also one of the trustees who lost power in the 2014 litigation) brought suit to remove the trustee and undo over $320,000 in payments to Mr. Genelin’s client. After full litigation, the court upheld the actions of the new trustee including the payments to Mr. Genelin’s client.
