Will Contests And Probate Litigation
A dispute during the probate process can take its toll on all parties involved. Our lawyers represent beneficiaries, Will Executors and Administrators who are involved in a probate dispute involving any of the following:
- Will contests: If the validity of the Will is in question, we can help you determine the best way of proceeding.
- Undue influence: Undue influence may be an issue if the decedent was pressured by another party to make changes to the Will. This may be especially problematic if the decedent was not of sound mind when the changes to the Will occurred.
- Executor fiduciary duty: If the Will Executor has misused or mismanaged funds, or has failed to act honestly or in the best interests of the beneficiaries, he or she can be held accountable.
- Competency issues: Was the decedent mentally and/or physically competent when the Will was signed?
Our lawyers can help you address other problems that arise during the probate process, working to find the most efficient way of resolving your dispute. While we always encourage parties to come to an agreement outside of court, we aggressively represent their interests in court when an agreement cannot be made.
