Our estate litigation attorneys successfully objected to a will with the help of technology forensic experts

Our clients were the surviving family members of the decedent. The decedent died alone at home. An autopsy established that he had taken his own life. He left a will that benefitted his girlfriend, a handyman and a dog park. He nominated his handyman as his fiduciary, all to the detriment of his family. We cross examined the attorney who drew the will and using extensive subpoenas established that the girlfriend had been met online shortly before the will and that the decedent had some very significant mental health conditions. We utilized forensic experts to examine the computers of the decedent and the girlfriend to establish the decedent’s lack of capacity and the undue influence practiced upon him. The case settled on terms very favorable to the family.
