Estate Litigation (Will Contests)
When there is a will contest, you should consult with the attorneys at Pfeiffer Bruno to make sure that your rights and interest are fully protected. If you do not feel that the estate was appropriately distributed or that the will does not accurately reflect the true wishes of the decedent, you need the advice of an experienced lawyer. Some reasons a will may be contested include:
- The will was made under force or duress
- The testator was incompetent to make a valid will
- The will lacked legal formalities such as appropriate execution
- The will was a result of fraud of undue influence
