When You Should Hire a Trust and Estate Litigation Attorney
You should consider hiring a trust and estate litigation attorney when there is a dispute or conflict related to an estate or will. Some situations where an estate litigation attorney can be helpful include:
Disputes over the validity of a will. If there are questions about the legitimacy of a will, an estate litigation attorney can help you contest or defend the will.
Disputes over the distribution of assets. If there’s a disagreement among beneficiaries or heirs about the distribution of assets, an estate litigation attorney can help you negotiate a settlement or represent you in court.
Disputes over the actions of an executor or trustee. If you believe that the executor or the trustee of an estate is not fulfilling their responsibilities or is engaging in fraud or misconduct, an estate litigation attorney can help you take legal action.
Claims of undue influence or incapacity. If you suspect that a person is unduly influenced to change their will or they lacked the mental capacity to make a decision about their estate, an estate litigation attorney can help you challenge the will or defend it.
In general, if you’re involved in a legal dispute related to an estate, it is a good idea to consult with an estate litigation attorney. They can help you understand your rights and options and provide you with representation and guidance through the legal process.
