When you have lost a loved one, it can be frustrating to resolve disputes among the surviving family members.

Queens Will Contest Lawyer
We have extensive experience handling legal matters with a wide range of disputes. In the area of estate litigation, the disputes typically fall into one of two categories.
- Challenging the document: Often, the surviving loved ones challenge the will itself — called a will contest — based on the fact that they were not treated fairly. Common disputes include a lack of mental capacity, or the presence of fraud, duress, or undue influence in the creation of the documents.
- Challenging the administrator: It is not uncommon for beneficiaries to challenge the way the estate administration has been handled. Whether those challenges are based on payment of creditors, breach of fiduciary duty or proper distribution of assets, a skilled estate litigation attorney should be contacted immediately.
Through the history of our practice, we have experience representing both the family members and the administrators throughout these proceedings. Our understanding of both sides of the dispute allows us to develop effective compromises and creative solutions.
