Will Contests

Having a will is one of the most important things you can do to protect your loved ones once you are gone, but sometimes having plans in place is not enough to prevent disputes. Questions about inheritance, the estate, will, or trusts of a deceased loved one can set off a firestorm in a family that sometimes leads to the courtroom. There are specific grounds on which a will or trust can be contested, and the legal guidelines are enough to make anyone's head spin. Mediation can provide a path to resolution that is easier on your loved ones, but it is not an option for every family. Regardless how you decide to resolve a will contest, Walter Cook can help.
