Your Trusted Source for 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.
