Are You Facing Estate Litigation?

Contact Brown Weimer LLC For Help!

Even the best laid estate plans cannot always prevent problems after the testator (for a will) or settlor (for a trust) passes away. Sometimes mixing family members and money do not always lead to a happy ending. While we work tirelessly to ensure that our clients' experiences with estate planning and succession are rewarding, the potential for estate litigation is on the back of our minds and cannot always be prevented or thwarted.

Estate litigation typically comes in two forms: it may be a challenge to an estate plan document such as how real estate property is being divided among the children , or an estate planning document can be questioned as to whether it was executed under fraud or undue influence, or it can be questioned if the testator lacked the mental capacity to sign a will or create a trust – all of which are common complaints. It may also have to do with the administration of an estate; for example, the beneficiaries may contend that the succession representative is unethical or mentally unstable, or otherwise breaching their fiduciary duty in one way or another.

If you are a beneficiary, a succession representative, or a trustee facing a will contest or another form of estate litigation, you are urged to contact a New Orleans estate litigation attorney from Brown Weimer LLC immediately for help!
