Resolving Inheritance Disputes

An inheritance dispute can arise from a wide variety of circumstances, including:

  • If someone believes he or she was unintentionally left out of a will
  • If someone contests the contents of the will or trust because they believe the deceased was incompetent at the time the document was drafted and executed
  • If someone believes their inheritance should be the same or more than someone else's
  • If someone believes their inheritance has been wrongfully denied to them
  • If someone's inheritance is not given to them because of a concealment of assets or a breach of fiduciary duty on the part of the person trusted to administer the will or trust

Our attorneys can help resolve an inheritance dispute by negotiating amongst the involved parties or litigating the matter, if necessary. In cases of inheritance fraud, we will investigate the allegations and can defend or pursue them if they are valid.
