Our Daphne estate planning attorneys are some of the most active estate and trust litigation practitioners in Alabama. This practice area uniquely combines an extensive understanding of estates, probate, intestacy, trusts, family limited partnerships, family limited liability companies, estate administration, elder law, elder abuse, powers of attorney, and estate planning with litigation rules and procedures in both Probate and Circuit Courts.


Oftentimes, law firms make the mistake of assigning estate and trust litigation cases to lawyers who are estate planners with little or no experience with litigation, while in others, litigators with minimal or no experience with estates and trusts are relied upon to resolve such disputes. Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana is different from other law firms. It is our strong belief that in order to fully represent and accurately litigate estate and trust matters, having a zealous litigator and proficient estates and trust attorney is crucial. For this reason, our firm is often the firm of choice not just for individuals and charities but also for other attorneys who wish to refer complex estate and trust litigation cases to us.
