Trusts & Estates Litigation

Objections To Wills And Trusts


Disinheritance often gives rise to a challenge to the will or trust, as do estate plans with unintended or unexpected asset distributions. In these instances, it is appropriate to question the validity of the will or trust and challenge the process by which it was developed. Typical challenges include lack of mental capacity and undue influence, defective document signing or fraud.. Having an attorney with experience dealing with these issues is essential.
