What Can Fair Share Lawyers Do for Me?
Our probate and estate dispute lawyers have the skills and knowledge to handle a variety of cases, such as:
- Will Contests
You may be able to contest a will if you feel you’ve been unfairly excluded, cheated out of an inheritance, or you believe your loved one’s true wishes are being ignored. Our lawyers are here to investigate your loved one’s estate and help protect your rights to the full inheritance you’re owed, but you need to act now.
- Trust Disputes
Similar to a will, a trust is a way for you to receive property and assets from a deceased loved one. If you are a beneficiary, you can challenge a trust for several reasons, including:
- The trust contains mistakes
- The trustee mishandled the estate
- The deceased was coerced or mentally unable to authorize the trust
Do you suspect a mistake or miscarriage of justice in the financial trust your loved one established for you? Call us today. If we find grounds for challenging your loved one’s trust, we’ll fight to help you get your fair share.
- Abuse of Power of Attorney
As your loved one grows older, power of attorney may be given to a close friend or family member to help make important financial and medical decisions. But if he or she betrays your loved one’s intent, it can have serious financial consequences. If your loved one is the victim of power of attorney abuse, we’ll do everything we can to hold the abuser accountable.
How Do I Know if I Have a Case?
It can be difficult to understand if you have the grounds to challenge a will, trust, or transfer of property. Visit our Do I Have a Case? page, or read about probate cases of families like yours to find out if you may have a claim.
What Is Probate?
Probate is the standard legal process for proving a will in court. In probate court, the deceased’s debts, taxes, and administration costs are paid from the assets comprising the estate, and the remaining assets are distributed according to the will. Probate court is also the venue for challenging a will, trust, or power of attorney when disputes arise from:
- Changes made to a will or trust
- Transfers of property prior to the death of the loved one
- Changes to beneficiary designations on life insurance or retirement accounts
- Co-ownership of inherited property
- Mismanagement of a probate or trust estate
- Elder abuse
If you suspect that your loved one has been the victim of undue influence, elder abuse, fraud, or mismanagement of assets regarding their financial estate, will, or trust, contact Fair Share Lawyers today.
How Much Does Fair Share Lawyers Charge?
For the majority of trust disputes and will contest cases, you will pay us no attorney fees unless we get you results. Though there will be some exceptions depending on the specifics of your case, we will always be upfront about the fees we charge clients.
