Will Contests and Estate Litigation
Our law firm represents beneficiaries, heirs, administrators, personal representatives and executors in cases involving contested wills.
Common reasons for challenging the validity of a will include:
- Lack of testamentary capacity: The will may not be valid if the decedent was not of sound mind when creating the will or making changes to the will.
- Undue influence: If the decedent made changes to the will due to undue influence from a person who stood to benefit from those changes, the will may not be valid.
- Fraud: If there is evidence the will has been forged or tampered with, it may be cause to contest the validity of the will.
- Later will: In general, a valid will renders any prior wills invalid.
Will contests can be costly, contentious affairs. Our attorneys work to help our clients resolve their will disputes in the most amicable, cost-effective manner possible. We have a proven record of success resolving disputes through mediation and alternative dispute resolution, as well as traditional litigation.
