Will Contests and Trust Litigation
Whether prepared as complex trust instruments in the office of a prestigious law firm, or scrawled on the back of a napkin, estate planning documents often raise issues of contract interpretation, rules of construction, and the intentions of the decedent, the draftsman, and the heirs. In an atmosphere charged by trauma or the death of a loved one, issues and disputes become problems and disputes that can challenge any Estate Litigation lawyer. Prepared and sensitive, Estate Litigation lawyers at the Boesch Law Group guide clients through investigation, discovery, negotiation, hearing and trial when necessary and settlement when possible.
Undue Influence and Testamentary Capacity
Did he have the ability and coherence to understand what he was doing when the trust or will was prepared? When does natural and honest help become “undue influence”? When protecting family treasure, what type of influence is forbidden? Estate Litigation lawyers at the Boesch Law Group regularly and successfully confront issues of undue influence and testamentary capacity, in court, in negotiation and in resolving the most complex problems in the Estate Litigation field.
Elder abuse allegations bring special challenges, whether or not jury trial is available, whether or not the claims are consolidated with probate-related issues. Because claims of financial abuse, physical isolation or physical abuse, may dictate the outcome of estate litigation, our Estate Litigation lawyers are experts in uncovering and proving financial frauds, misappropriations, and actions which take advantage of the elderly and the weak. The Boesch Law Group prosecutes such cases where warranted, and when parties attack well-meaning caregivers, we provide the most capable defense.
