LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY, USA, July 15, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Founding Partner and CPA, Jamie Hargrove, is proud to present the Hargrove Company Trust and Estate Litigation Group (Litigation Group) edited by Megan Holt.

The Litigation Group brings together a team of seasoned lawyers to resolve complex probate, trust and trust disputes and joins Hargrove Firm’s existing portfolio of services in estate planning, business, elder care and special needs.
Coinciding with the launch of the Litigation Group, Megan Holt joined as a partner at Hargrove. This move represents a natural next step in his career. “I am delighted and honored to lead an exceptional group of lawyers, who can draw on Jamie’s decades of estate planning experience, to provide Hargrove Firm’s clients with the first-class legal services that they expect and deserve,” says Holt.
Prior to joining Hargrove Firm, Holt handled estate, trust and guardianship litigation, as well as civil litigation and other miscellaneous legal matters with Lexington-based Rose Grasch Camenisch Mains PLLC (RGCM). She also acquired significant experience in civil litigation during her tenure with an insurance defense firm. As a partner at Hargrove Law Firm leading the Litigation Group, Holt brings to each client seasoned hands-on experience in resolving complex trust, estate and guardianship disputes.
