What Type of Dispute Are You Involved In?

Our estate litigation practice is comprehensive, covering the full range of possible issues. This includes:

  • Capacity to make a will — If someone is struggling with dementia or another medical issue, it may not be possible for him or her to make a valid will or legally change one that already exists.
  • Undue influence on — In order for a will to be valid, there must not be excessive influence on the person making it from family members, caregivers or any other party.
  • Improper use of a power of attorney — If someone who has received power of attorney for health care or financial decisions fails to use it properly, legal action may be necessary to put matters to right.
  • Wrongdoing by fiduciaries — Executors, trustees and other fiduciaries sometimes breach their duties.
