Protecting Your Rights in Will Contests and Estate Disputes

If you have an interest in the estate of a friend or loved one and disputes have arisen regarding the validity of a will or trust or the value of property in the estate, you want an experienced attorney to protect your interests. If you are concerned that an executor is not acting in your best interests, you need a knowledgeable attorney to help you understand your options, so that you can make informed decisions.

At the Probate Law Center, PC, in St. Louis, I have over 26 years of experience representing individuals and estates in probate litigation, including will contests. I have a thorough understanding of the claims that may be filed against an estate or an executor. I will aggressively advocate to protect your rights. Contact me to schedule a free initial consultation.

Many of the clients I represent want to file a will contest because they have been excluded from the estate. I work closely with these clients to identify evidence indicating that the deceased actually meant to include the client in the distribution of assets. In other situations, I can show that the deceased lacked the necessary mental capacity at the time the will or trust was prepared and executed to properly make such decisions.

I handle other disputes for parties that have an interest in an estate, including:

  • Creditor's refusals. I represent clients in situations where creditors are owed money by a decedent and seek to open the probate estate in order to secure payment of the debt.
  • Spousal refusals. I handle cases involving spouses or widows who have paid debts greater than the value of the estate. Customarily, these debts are paid off, but not in full.
