Handling All Types of Will Contests in South Florida

Senior citizens often rely on caregivers, neighbors and relatives with their personal and financial affairs. This can put seniors in a very vulnerable position. After your loved one passed away, you may now be suspicious wondering if the person you trusted the most actually took advantage of your loved one.

Other times, a poorly written will with vague or contradictory terms can lead to bitter disputes. No matter the circumstances, will disputes are often laced with emotional complications. Our lawyers have extensive experience untangling the issues involved and helping our clients obtain a favorable resolution. We can apply our years of experience and legal resources to challenge the legitimacy of a will based on the following types of allegations:

  • Undue influence: Did you notice a relative or caregiver who became unusually close to your loved one just before he or she passed away? All too often, people prey on vulnerable adults to try exploiting their finances. Our lawyers are prepared to prove undue influence was used to take advantage of your loved one's inheritance intentions.
  • Lack of mental capacity: As people age, they often deal with Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's disease and other illnesses threatening their mental capacity. The validity of your loved one's will could be called into question, if you believe it was written when he or she lacked the mental capacity to make sound decisions.
  • Forgery: In order for a will to be valid, it must have a proper signature. If you believe someone forged your loved one's signature, this is a form of fraud. Our lawyers can work with handwriting experts to prove the terms of the will are invalid based on forgery concerns.
