We Are Always Prepared To Go To Trial On Your Behalf

When a will is taken through the probate process, a number of challenges can result. We handle claims involving concerns about the validity of a will, including whether the person making the will was competent at the time it was created, or whether they were subjected to undue influence when they executed the will. We will also represent parties in cases where a child, spouse or other potential heir is contesting being excluded from the will.

In our experience, will contests are not easy to win, as proving incompetency or undue influence is often difficult when the alleged victim is deceased. Furthermore, in will contests in Alabama, if you lose, you must pay the other party's legal fees. As a result, we meticulously review all the facts, evidence and circumstances of your case before recommending that you file an action.

We also handle probate litigation involving conservatorships and guardianships, whether you believe that the creation of a conservatorship or guardianship is in the best interests of a loved one or you want to challenge the attempt to establish one.
