Will Contests

In the event a Will’s validity or content is challenged, a will contest occurs.  A Will can be contested on grounds that the Decedent lacked capacity or was under undue influence at the time of execution, that the Will is ambiguous or is a forgery, or for a number of other reasons.  It is not unusual for a will contest to proceed to a jury trial.  For parties contesting a Will or defending a Will, it is important to have counsel experienced not only in the probate courts, but experienced as trial lawyers in complex litigation as well.
