Probate & Estate Litigation

Even the best estate planning cannot eliminate the potential for litigation after the testator’s death.

A beneficiary may claim the decedent lacked the mental capacity to make a will, or may claim that another beneficiary exerted undue influence on the testator to produce a will that unfairly benefited the beneficiary or deprived other benefits of the estate. There may be disputes about the ownership or particular estate assets when a third party claims the decedent conveyed the asset during his lifetime. There may be claims by spouses or former spouses or illegitimate children. Or there may be claims that the executor or a trustee has acted out of self-interest or has wasted estate assets through imprudent management.
