Our Norton Shores elder law attorney has been on both sides of contesting a will, which makes him uniquely qualified to handle your case.
Our attorney’s experience with wills and trusts means he’ll be able to anticipate how the other side will build their case and how to best protect your rights as a beneficiary, as well as the final wishes of the decedent. We understand that contesting a will can be stressful, especially if it pits you against other family members.
If a family member is having financial problems, they may contest a will or behave in ways they wouldn’t normally. Whether you need to defend a legal will that is being challenged, or you wish to challenge the distribution of assets under a will or trust, our legal team will be by your side throughout the entire process.
Reasons for contesting wills and trusts include:
- Undue influence
- Lack of capacity
- Abuse of fiduciary duties involving powers of attorney
Contesting a will or trust is a complicated process, requiring large amounts of medical proof. Fortunately, our elder law attorney has experience using medical records, as well as working with doctors, nurses, and other experts in the field to build strong cases.
Our Norton Shores elder law attorney can help you create wills and trusts that will stand up in court and honor your final wishes. We are also able to help with estate planning and other elder law matters. To set up your consultation with elder law attorney Douglas H. McPhail, call (231) 799-4994.
