Wills Contests, Undue Influence and Other Estate Disputes

Disputes are common during the estate administration process. A family member may disagree with the way an estate is being handled or accuse a representative of stealing family heirlooms.

At our firm, we represent clients in all types of estate disputes, including:

  • Will contests: If you believe that a will was created fraudulently or as a result of undue influence over the deceased by someone close to him or her, it may be possible to contest the validity of the will.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty actions: A representative or trustee can breach his or her fiduciary duty to the estate in a number of ways, including fraud, self-dealing or failure to distribute assets to the beneficiaries in a reasonable amount of time. We represent clients who believe that a representative or trustee has breached his or her duty, as well as those who are accused.
