Handling Bitter Estate Disputes In Probate Litigation

Family conflicts can vary as much as the dynamics involved. If you are caught in a dispute with family members or with an executor over how your loved one's estate was administered, settle for nothing less than experienced representation. Oakland County probate lawyer James Warr has experience advocating for clients seeking to uphold or challenge how an estate was administered. Based on his comprehensive experience, he knows what to anticipate in pursuit of a favorable resolution to probate disputes, regarding:

  • Will contests — The validity of a will may be questioned if family members become concerned their loved one did not have the mental capacity due to Alzheimer's, dementia or another ailment to make sound decisions. Disputes also erupt if family members believe a relative or family friend used undue influence to sway what was included in the will.
  • Poorly written wills — When wills are written in vague or unclear terms, family disputes can quickly spiral out of control over what was intended. Probate litigation may be needed to decipher what someone's intention was before he or she passed away.
  • Estate fraud — Attorney James Warr has a strong background handling estate fraud cases that can be very obvious and sometimes more subtle. Estate fraud disputes can include anything from using undue influence to destroying a will or wrongfully using a power of attorney for their own financial gain.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty — Executors and personal representative are expected to act in the best interests of the estate. When they make decisions to benefit themselves, they can be held accountable for breaching their fiduciary duty.
