We Focus On The Cause, Not The Effect

While a well-drafted estate plan is the best line of defense against future litigation, it is not a guarantee. There are any number of reasons that an estate plan would be challenged, including:

  • Undue influence: A concern that a person close to the deceased influenced the decisions in an estate plan due to their access
  • Lack of testamentary capacity: A concern that the decedent did not possess the mental capacity to understand what the will included

We take every possible step to avoid these complications when making changes to wills, by conferring with your physician and treating you ethically when you request changes to your will.

Additionally, there may be issues that involve a serious breach of fiduciary duty when it comes to a trust. The trust administrator, or trustee, has a duty to act according to the wishes of the trust’s creator and in the best interests of the beneficiary. If it can be proved that a trustee acted otherwise or that the final accounting is off in some way, action must be taken.
