Protective Representation in Will Contests and Other Probate Law Disputes

I have helped many families resolve will contests. I will work closely with you to understand your specific concerns and any allegations against you. I thoroughly will investigate the situation and gather as much evidence as possible about the relationships involved, any duress or undue influence that may have been exerted, and your loved one’s true intent.

I carefully analyze every detail to resolve concerns about the validity of a will or allegations that could lead to a will contest, such as:

  • Improper execution
  • Lack of testamentary capacity
  • Undue influence or duress
  • Fraud

You may be concerned, for example that a caregiver may have taken advantage of your loved one. There may be reason to believe your parent did not have the mental capacity to make a sound judgment when he or she wrote or changed a will. Whatever your concerns, I am ready to help you. I am committed to protecting your rights and helping you ensure that your loved one’s final wishes are carried out.
