Estate planning, wills, and trusts
Estate planning through wills and trusts is essential to making sure that your property is distributed as you intended and that you maximize the assets that are retained by you and your family. It is important that will formalities are followed to minimize the chance that there will be a will contest following your death. While you can write a will without the help of an attorney, you run the risk that your wishes will not be complied with following your death because of oversight in the drafting of the will. Our attorneys are well versed in the drafting of wills and trusts, and will work with you to make sure that your assets are distributed as you desire.
Wills, trusts, and other transfers can be contested on many grounds, including:
- Undue influence
- Lack of capacity
- Fraud and duress
- Lack of compliance with statutory formalities
In the event that there is a will contest or litigation involving an estates, we are prepared to use our litigation and dispute resolution experience resolve the issue so that the decedent’s wishes are complied with following death.
