Probate Litigation

Probate Litigation—will contests, trust contests, life insurance, payable on death accounts

When a person dies, the family normally looks to a will, a trust or some other beneficiary designation to figure out how to divide the property or accounts.  In the vast majority of cases, a decedent has clearly set forth the proper disposition in a plainly worded estate plan setting forth what he/she intended for the disposition of property after death.

But sometimes the decedent’s family or a beneficiary feels the written estate plan doesn’t represent the decedent’s true wishes.  They may feel the decedent was tricked or coerced into signing a document—sometimes referred to as “undue influence”.  In other cases, there can be questions of whether the decedent signed papers while suffering from mental illness or dementia.

An experienced lawyer can help resolve the discrepancies and make sure the decedent’s property is divided in a manner consistent with the decedent’s wishes.
