Diligent Brooklyn Will Contest Attorney
Skillfully examining your case and advising you on will contests
After losing a loved one, the last thing most of us want to do is fight with family members over a will or estate plan. Although planning in advance can help minimize potential disputes, they still occur when the validity of the will is disputed, the terms of the will are unclear or family members disagree, are left out of the will or do not receive a promised or expected inheritance.
At the Law Offices of Peter G. Gray, P.C., I understand how frustrating and emotionally draining disputes over wills can be. I offer services that are sensitive to your loss and that fully address your concerns. By bringing 25 years of experience as a trial attorney and will contest lawyer in Brooklyn to your case, I diligently examine the issues to resolve disputes efficiently and effectively.
Grounds for contesting a will
A will contest is a formal objection raised by a beneficiary or other party claiming the will is invalid under the law. When a beneficiary does not receive assets as promised or is left out of the will entirely, or if the beneficiary, executor or other party believes the will does not accurately reflect the wishes of the decedent, he or she may attempt to contest the validity of the will. As a Brooklyn will contest attorney, I assist with or defend against claims of invalid wills based on several grounds:
- Lack of testamentary capacity
- Lack of due execution of the will
- Undue influence
Who can contest a will
In order to contest the validity of a will, you must have the right to challenge the will under the law. As a Brooklyn will contest attorney, I offer high quality representation for a broad range of clients with reasons to challenge a will:
- Disinherited heirs who would have inherited under the law if there was no will
- Beneficiaries or fiduciaries named in prior wills
- Beneficiaries or fiduciaries named in the will
To learn more about whether you have the right and the grounds to contest a will, you should speak to a reputable Brooklyn probate attorney as soon as possible.
