Will and Trust Contests

The settlement of a loved one’s estate is done at a highly emotional time for those involved. Those emotions may bring out doubt and suspicion of the validity of an estate plan, especially if beneficiaries are not treated equally. Questions of undue influence or the ability of the decedent to understand the documents at the time they were signed may arise.

We will help your family work through these questions and help resolve disputes. Sometimes negotiated settlements are the answer, but at other times litigation may be necessary. At the Law Office of Dalton & Herlehy, P.C., we represent individuals contesting the validity of Last Wills and Testaments and trust agreements, as well as those defending claims of invalidity.
