Handling All Types Of Estate Litigation Concerns

Estate litigation can arise in a variety of contexts. Sometimes the circumstances are just suspicious — a new caretaker moves in for six months to care for a dying relative, and when the will is released, the new caretaker is given everything. A will might be deemed invalid in estate litigation if the person making the will was subject to undue influence or unable to understand his or her decisions, at the time the will was made.

Other times, nothing is suspicious, but the terms are simply unclear. Imprecise language might leave two people with seemingly valid claims to a single item that cannot be divided. Wills aren't tested until it is too late to ask more questions. An administrator or executor may be engaged in self-dealing rather than protecting the interests of beneficiaries. In this case, you may need to begin a legal action to remove the administrator or executor, or demand an accounting.

If you are considering estate litigation, come to our offices today. We will provide you with candid advice regarding the merits of your claim.
