Excellent probate litigation attorney
I have referred several probate litigation matters to Mr. Trushin. He has handled each of them with great skill and integrity. The feedback from my clients has been thoroughly positive. Mr. Trushin is my 'go to' attorney in Miami for clients with probate related matters, both litigated as well as simple administrations.

Excellent Probate and Estate Lawyer
Mr. Trushin and his firm have handled several estate planning and trust matters for me and my family. He and his firm clearly know the law and did an excellent job in drafting all my papers. The team of lawyers they have is impressive. I contact them whenever any legal issue comes up because they either know how to answer my question, deal with the problem or direct me to the right place to get answers. I would highly recommend them.
