Will Contests
It happens all too often: Someone passes away and his or her estate planning documents are unclear, were signed in haste or might otherwise be considered procured through fraud.
These are highly emotional conflicts for the people involved. People have lost a loved one and worry that he or she was taken advantage of late in life or that his or her wishes will not be carried out appropriately during probate administration.

Avoiding probate is important, as it often is a costly and lengthy process, but many cases that involve will caveats end up there. Heirs, beneficiaries, estate executors and administrators each have specific goals and responsibilities, and they do not always fall in line with each other.
