Will Objections & Contests

We represent clients in probate contests and litigation involving fiduciaries and the failure to invest funds properly. State law sets forth certain requirements regarding the signing of Wills. They must be signed in the presence of two persons who actually witness the signing of the will. Sometimes wills are signed by a person at his or her home or in a hospital or nursing home without witnesses and the witness sign at a later time. Such wills can be challenged. Wills can also be challenged if they were obtained through undue influence. Undue influence occurs when a person with power over another causes that person to sign a will. We will challenge wills obtained without complying with state law or which result from undue influence.
