Smart with heart. It’s what sets our team at Epstein + Holtzapple apart.


What exactly do trust and estate litigators do?
In the most basic sense, we represent clients in court when a conflict arises after someone dies, or is still alive but is unable to manage their finances.

What do you enjoy most about your work?
We meet clients while they are grieving the loss of a loved one and are involved in a lawsuit. Guiding clients during this challenging time allows us to connect with them on a deeper level, which is incredibly gratifying. Zealously advocating for our clients in court also brings us great joy.

Why does experience matter?
If you break an elbow, you don’t want a heart surgeon to handle the repair. The same idea applies to trust and estate lawsuits. Clients want to feel confident that their attorneys are deeply familiar with the anatomy of their particular lawsuit, the probate courts in which they are tried, and the legal issues that might arise. This can only come from experience.

What do lawyers do to relax?
Lawyers don’t relax! Of course, we’re joking, but as busy moms and attorneys, it can be a challenge. We do our best to take our mind off work by focusing on self-care and spending time with our families and friends.
