Conflicts can arise during the probate process. Unfortunately, these disputes often involve close family members who are still grieving over the loss of a parent or other loved one. The additional stress often complicates an already troubling time. The compassionate lawyers at Allen Wellman McNew Harvey, LLP, understand that navigating complex family dynamics is often a vital aspect of resolving probate and estate disputes.
Experienced In Resolving Wills And Trusts Contests
If you are the beneficiary of a will or trust and believe that the estate of your loved one is not being handled properly, you can work with a knowledgeable probate attorney to protect your rights. Common disputes involve the validity of a will due to undue influence or other improprieties in the execution of the document. Other conflicts may involve how an administrator or a trustee is handling the estate. We will assess the specific facts and circumstances and provide you with clear legal advice and diligent representation to protect your interests.
We represent heirs, personal representatives, executors, beneficiaries, family members, trustees and others in trust and will contests. Common issues in probate and estate litigation include:
- Spousal election disputes
- Contests to the validity of a will
- Undue influence
- Mental capacity to execute the will
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Breach of trust
- Abuses in trust or will administration
When you retain our firm to resolve your probate and estate dispute, we will take the time to fully evaluate the dispute and your legal options. In many situations, disputes can be resolved through inquiry. However, as skilled trial lawyers, we believe that preparing for trial is the key to achieving the most favorable outcome. We begin preparing for trial from the very beginning, even if a matter is ultimately resolved amicably. Our efficient approach to the law is your advantage.
