Irvine, Orange County Estate and Trust Litigation Attorney

Representing heirs, beneficiaries as well as fiduciaries such as trustees and executors in will contests and estate litigation and trust litigation in Irvine, Orange County and throughout Southern California.


Mr. Wittick was a partner in a litigation firm where he worked for 10 years in the 1980s, and handled many complex and substantial exposure tort litigation cases involving personal injury, product liability, construction defect, insurance coverage, public entity and insurance company defense. Since then, he has continued to handle litigation matters but for the last 18 years, he has only litigated in estate planning, trust and probate law.

As a certified specialist in those areas of law and with his many years of experience in litigation, Mr. Wittick believes that he brings an expertise which serves as an advantage to his litigation clients.

His experience in litigation also allows him to better counsel his estate planning, trust and probate clients about how to create or implement an estate plan that will avoid disputes or litigation which is of comfort to a significant number of clients who expect a dispute. This experience also results in many referrals from the predominance of estate planning attorneys who do not litigate.

Lastly, estate and trust litigation is and has been on the rise for many years due to many factors including the increasing number of baby boomers getting older and dying with substantial wealth. We therefore hope that Mr. Wittick’s experience and expertise in this area may be just another factor leading you to retain the Law Offices of Michael J. Wittick, a P.L.C.
