Estate Dispute Lawyers
Is someone you know unfairly benefiting from an estate plan? Have you unexpectedly been cut out of a loved one's will? It is important to protect your rights when there is a dispute regarding a loved one's will or estate plan. At the Waukesha law offices of Grady, Hayes & Neary, we have experience representing individuals in estate disputes.
Attorney Stephen Hayes has been handling will and estate disputes and contests for over 25 years. Over that time, he has skillfully acted on behalf of a wide variety of clients, arguing successfully in numerous Wisconsin trial and appellate courts.
There are several ways to contest an estate. At Grady, Hayes & Neary, we can assist you before or after the will has been settled. As soon as you notice that something isn't right, you may wish to contact an attorney. These are the ways in which we can dispute an estate plan:
- Incompetence: If the person writing the will was incompetent when it was written, you may be able to have the results legally disregarded.
- Undue Influence: It may be the case that the person benefiting the most from the will had undue influence over the person making the will. Proof of undue influence can cause a will to be thrown out by a court.
Whatever the case may be, we will help you examine the personality of the decedent in order to come to a better understanding of why he or she made the decisions that affected the will or estate. We can then negotiate a settlement or go to trial in order to achieve a favorable result for you.
We can represent your rights in estate and probate administration hearings. We can help you get the consideration you deserve. Contact us today for more information.
