Estate Litigation Lawyer | On Your Side

If you’re facing a conflict that has arisen either during or after the administration of your loved one’s estate, you need an attorney who can explore all possible options to get you the results you need. In some cases, these cases can be resolved outside of court, such as through mediation, but this isn’t always possible. No matter your circumstances, however, a Florida estate lawyer from our firm is here to help.

Common Estate-Related Disputes

A wide range of disputes can occur when it comes to administering an estate, however, the most common that we see are as follows:

  • Will Contests: For a will to be considered valid and enforceable, it must meet various criteria. If you believe that your loved one’s last will & testament fell short of that criteria in some way, you may have grounds to contest it. Some of the grounds that may warrant a will contest include a lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, fraud, duress, mistake, or improper execution. A will contest can be initiated by any interested person who has legal standing to object to the probate of the will, such as a beneficiary, an heir, or a creditor.
  • Trust Contests: Not dissimilar from wills, a person can contest a trust if they believe it is invalid or unenforceable in some way.
  • Breaches of Fiduciary Duty: If you believe that a personal representative or trustee failed to act in the best interest of the estate or trust, or otherwise violated their legal duties and obligations, you may bring a claim of a breach of fiduciary duty against them. A breach of fiduciary duty can be initiated by any interested person who has been harmed by the fiduciary’s actions or inactions, such as a beneficiary, heir, or creditor.
